Bliss Unlimited, LLC, Eugene, Oregon is recalling Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert with codes dates Nov 11, 2012, through Oct 24, 2013, only. This recall is being initiated because the peanut butter used in the product for these specific code dates is supplied by Sunland, Inc., which has issued a national recall of some of its products due to possible contamination with Salmonella.
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella 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 product was distributed to retail stores throughout the United States between November 2010 and December 2011. It is packaged in One Pint (473ml) paperboard containers with UPC code 8 96767 00121 9 printed on the back of the container, and the stamp with 41-61 and a date range of Nov 11 2012 through Oct 24 2012 printed on the bottom of the container.
To date, there have been no reported illnesses attributed to Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Chocolate Peanut Butter Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert and the recall does not include any other flavors or date codes. For more information on the recall, please visit the FDA PRESS RELEASE.
