RECALL: MoonPie Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies

Posted:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Chattanooga Bakery Inc., manufacturers of the city's famed MoonPie sandwich cookies, has issued a voluntary recall  for its MoonPie Peanut Butter Crunch products with "Best By" dates of 02/26/13, 03/25/13, and 04/29/13 because its peanut butter supply might be contaminated with a rare strain of Salmonella.

No other Chattanooga Bakery, MoonPie or LookOut products are affected by the recall.

Food safety News reports that The Peanut Butter Crunch products are made with peanut butter from New Mexico-based Sunland Inc., which is involved in a recall of its own brands of peanut and almond butter and Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, produced by Sunland, Inc.

Those products have been associated with an multistate outbreak of the rarely seen Salmonella Bredeney now involving 30 confirmed cases in 19 states.

Chattanooga Bakery's recalled Peanut Butter Crunch products (9.6 ounce multipack and 2.4 ounce twin pack) have not been associated with any of the reported illnesses.

The company recall statement said "Regardless, we are taking this precautionary step to protect our customers and their families from any possible risk. Customers who have purchased this item are urged not to eat the product, and to dispose of it or return it to the retailer for a full refund," the company recall announcement said.
