LATE JULY SNACKS VOLUNTARILY RECALLS MINI PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH CRACKERS BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE HEALTH RISK
Late July Snacks, LLC, of Barnstable, MA, out of an abundance of caution, is cooperating fully with the Sunland Inc. voluntary recall of nut butter products manufactured by Sunland at its New Mexico facility between May and September 2012. In its press release (http://www.sunlandinc.com/788/html/pdfs/SunlandRecall.pdf) Sunland identified the Sunland Extra Stabilized Organic Creamy Peanut Butter as part of the voluntary recall. Sunland is one of our peanut butter suppliers and this peanut butter was an ingredient used in recent production of our Late July Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers.
The Organic Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers are being recalled because Sunland states that their peanut butter has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at http://www.cdc.gov for more information.
No illnesses have been reported to date with consumption of the Sunland Extra Stabilized Organic Creamy Peanut Butter or Late July Organic Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers. Late July Snacks is committed to producing the highest quality products and our top priority is the safety of our customers.
