CEF’s voluntary recall is in response to the widening recall involving Peanut Butter manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) due to possible contamination with Salmonella. PCA was one supplier of peanut butter to CEF. Products manufactured by CEF have NOT been linked to the nationwide Salmonella outbreak. All lots of all products manufactured by CEF are tested by reputable independent laboratories and all products have tested negative with no Salmonella contamination being detected. As part of its priority to ensure the safety and quality of all of its products, CEF is issuing the voluntary recall.

Salmonella bacteria 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 cramps. Consumers with the above symptoms should consult their physician. No illnesses associated with any of these products have been reported to date.

Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products are urged to not consume the product and to contact CEF Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM Pacific Time at 510-567-1200 for disposal instructions. Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor or health care provider.
