King Nut and Parnell’s Pride Peanut Butter Recalled Due to Salmonella 

DENVER– State health officials today announced Peanut Corporation of America, a peanut processing company that makes peanut butter for bulk distribution to institutions, food service industries and private label food companies, is voluntarily recalling peanut butter produced in its Blakely, Ga., processing facility because of possible contamination with Salmonella. None of the peanut butter being recalled is sold directly to consumers through retail stores.

The recalled peanut butter sold in bulk by Peanut Corporation of America under labels “King Nut” and Parnell’s Pride” has been linked to a national Salmonella outbreak that has sickened almost 400 people in 42 states, including nine people in Colorado. Other brands of peanut butter are not affected.

Peanut Corporation of America customers who received the recalled product are being notified by telephone and in writing. The company also has set up a toll-free hotline number, 1-877-564-7080, to answer questions.

All peanut butter affected was produced on or after July 1, 2008, specific to the lot numbers and descriptions listed below:

Lot Numbers Affected: 8193, 8194, 8197, 8233, 8234, 8235, 8241, 8255, 8256, 8275, 8276, 8282, 8283, 8284, 8296, 8316, 8330, 8331, 8336, 8345, 8354

Peanut Corporation of America initiated the recall after an open container of King Nut brand peanut butter, which they produce, was found in a long-term care facility in Minnesota that contained a strain of salmonella.

            The voluntary recall of 21 lots of the peanut butter, in containers ranging from 5 to 50 pounds, is effective immediately. Customers have been directed to take all peanut butter manufactured with the listed lot numbers out of distribution.

            According to an update on CDC’s Web site, preliminary analysis of an epidemiologic study conducted by CDC and public health officials has suggested the peanut butter as a likely source of the Salmonella outbreak. The CDC and other public health officials are continuing to conduct surveillance for cases of infection with the outbreak strains and to gather and analyze data or exposures that may be associated with illness.

Eating food contaminated with Salmonella can result in abdominal cramping, diarrhea and fever. Most people infected with Salmonella develop the symptoms 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.

However, in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.

For more information, the public may call Danny Rifkin of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at 303-692-3644 or visit the company Web site at .
