FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Pompano Beach, FL -- March 8, 2007 -- Flora Foods of Pompano Beach, Florida, is recalling its 25oz jars of "Cerignola Olives" (UPC 0-20038-00693-5) because they have the potential to be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.

Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.

The recalled "Cerignola" olives were distributed in Florida, Georgia and upstate New York in retail stores.

The product comes in a 25 oz, clear glass jar marked with LOT #G080 stamped on the label.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing found that the product had been underprocessed.

Distribution of the product has been suspended as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.

Consumers who have purchased 25 oz jars of "Cerignola" olives are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 954-785-3100.
