FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 12, 2012 - JagRma LLC of San Diego, CA is doing a Limited Voluntary recall on it's 16oz NuttZo Original (Blue Label/UPC code 894697002030) manufactured in Oct and November 2011 with "Best Buy Dates 10/7/12-12/31/12 stamped on lid or bottom of jar," because it 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.
The specifics of the affected products are as follows:

JagRma LLC was notified by one of our ingredients suppliers, Multiple Organics, Inc. located in San Rafael, CA, of a secondary recall for Sunland Inc peanuts going back as far as March 2010; Multiple Organics informed us that Sunland Inc. peanuts were used in the production run of NuttZo Original (BLUE LABEL) in October and November of 2011; therefore JagRma, LLC is participating in a voluntary limited recall of specific 'Best Buy Dates' because the safety of our customers is of the utmost importance and we take our obligation to provide safe products seriously.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
Please note that in our 2012 NuttZo manufacturing runs, all peanuts have been sourced from a different supplier. Therefore all Best Buy Dates of 2013 are not affected in this voluntary limited recall.
Consumers who have purchased 16oz NuttZo Original (Blue Label/UPC code 894697002030) with Best 'Buy Dates 10/7/12-12/31/12' are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
