FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 6, 2012 - Out of utmost concern and caution for our customers, and in response to Justin's Nut Butter expanded voluntary recall of its 0.5 oz single-serve Honey Peanut Butter squeeze packs, Flying Food Group, headquartered in Chicago, IL, is initiating a voluntary recall of Starbucks brand Protein Bistro Box with Enjoy By dates 8/10/12 - 10/06/12 which contain the above named peanut butter product. The recalled peanut butter squeeze packs contained in the Protein Bistro Boxes have the following Best By dates: 7/14/13, 7/26/13, 7/27/13, 7/28/13, 7/29/13, 8/9/23, 8/10/13, 8/13/13, 8/14/13, 8/15/13, 8/26/13, 8/27/13, 8/28/13, 8/29/13, or 8/30/13.

Peanuts associated with the Sunland, Inc. recall were used in the production of certain lots of Justin's Honey Peanut Butter squeeze pack product and have the potential to 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 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.

Flying Food Group is issuing this voluntary recall linked to the supplier's recall to minimize any risk to public health.

The recalled product was distributed solely to Starbucks retail stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and California from 8/8/12 to 10/4/12. All impacted product has been confirmed as removed from stores.

The Protein Bistro Box product is in a clear plastic container, with a white code date sticker on the bottom of the container, stating "Enjoy by" followed by the date in the following format: M (Month) DD (Date), for example, 08 08 standing for August 8th. The recalled Justin's single-serve Honey Peanut Butter pouches are included inside the Protein Bistro Boxes and are fully labeled with the Justin's brand and sealed. The individual pouches are dated stamped at the bottom of the pouch.

Anyone who has the recalled product or the associated individual Peanut Butter pouches in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard the product. Consumers with questions may contact the Flying Food Group at (773) 387-8078, Monday- Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the United States Food and Drug Administration.
