FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- March 1, 2009 -- Whole Foods Market of Bellevue, Washington is recalling seven peanut and peanut containing products, plus self-serve grind Peanut Butter due to potential salmonella contamination. The peanut products and self-grind peanut butter made from them were manufactured using peanut products recalled by Peanut Corporation of American because they had 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. 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.  

The peanut products and peanut butter made from them were distributed throughout Washington and Oregon through Whole Foods Market stores in the bulk foods section from Jan 1 2007 to Feb 13 2009.
