Some Peanut Butter Newman-O's Sandwich Crème Cookies Recalled

The organic snack has been recalled due to a Salmonella health risk concern.

Newman's Own Organics announces that due to the expanded scope of Sunland, Inc.'s recall of nut butter products (peanut butter in particular), we are initiating a voluntary limited recall of certain lots of Peanut Butter Newman-O's Sandwich Crème Cookies, with expiration dates 27MAY13 and 3MAY13, because the products may 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 circumstance, 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. For more information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

These cookies were distributed nationwide via retail stores.

No other Newman's Own Organics products or expiration dates are affected by this voluntary recall. The expiration dates are located on the side panels of the boxes or packages and are not marked with the words "Expiration Date" or "Use By Date".
