FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 16, 2012 – Trifecta Foods, LLC in Pacoima, CA is voluntarily recalling products containing IN-SHELL ROASTED SALTED AND UNSALTED PEANUTS supplied to Trifecta Foods by SUNLAND, INC. because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.  SUNLAND, INC. advised Trifecta Foods that it was declaring a recall of its peanuts and, although in-shell peanuts is a small part of its business, Trifecta Foods moved immediately to withdraw the products from the public containing peanuts from SUNLAND, INC.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those 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 withSalmonella 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.

The products being recalled are IN-SHELL ROASTED SALTED AND UNSALTED PEANUTS available to retail customers under the Fresh Pak and Energy Club labels distributed nationally to independent stores, grocery and retail chains. The products being recalled were distributed during the six month period immediately prior to the October 12, 2012 recall date (April 12, 2012 – October 12, 2012) and distribution of the products has ceased. The products being recalled will have “Best By”/expiration dates on the packaging from November 23, 2012 through April 10, 2013.
