24. National Pretzel Co. Announces Precautionary Recall of Honey Mustard Onion Seasoned Pretzels Because of Possible Health Risk

Company Contact: Heather Sabharwal, Kratos Global
hsabharwal@kratosglobal.com
Tel: 202-577-3272

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 05, 2010 – As a precautionary measure, National Pretzel Company of Lancaster, Pa. is voluntarily recalling all Honey Mustard Onion flavored pretzels produced since December, 2009 because an ingredient used in the seasoning has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The honey mustard onion seasoning contains Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP) which was recalled by Basic Foods Flavors, Inc. and has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

NO illnesses have been reported to date.

NO other National Pretzel products are involved in the recall.

The recalled Honey Mustard Onion seasoned pretzels were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through repackers.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact the company at 1-717-637-5931.

Contact: Kelli Estrella, Co-Owner/ Tel: 360-249-6541

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 05, 2010 – The Estrella Family Creamery of Montesano, Washington, is recalling a production of Old Apple Tree Tomme cheese because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infections can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Old Apple Tree Tomme cheese was sold at the Ballard and Seattle’s U-District farmer’s markets in Seattle, Washington, and the firm’s farm store in Montesano, Washington the weekend of Feb. 27 and 28, 2010.

The recalled cheese was sold by custom order at the markets and the firm’s farm store, with a label bearing it’s name. The product does not contain a lot code.

No illnesses in connection with this product or any other Estrella cheeses have been reported to date.

The recall is the result of continued sampling by the state of Washington Department of Agriculture, which revealed that one wheel of the finished product contained the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Consumers who have any should return the cheese to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 360.249.6541 between 6:00am – 8:00pm PST.
