Perry's Ice Cream Company Adds Two Products to Voluntary Recall of Select Peanut Butter Ice Cream Products

Perry’s Ice Cream today announced an update to their January 17, 2009 voluntary recall of select ice cream products containing peanut butter because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ice cream contains peanut butter supplied by Peanut Corporation of America, which is the subject of an FDA investigation concerning recent Salmonella outbreaks.

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. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Website at http://www.cdc.gov.

The two new items are:

* Shurfine Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream (1.75 QT) distributed in New York and Pennsylvania
* Meijer Peanut Butter Cup (16oz) distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Michigan
