Rain Creek Baking Corporation Announces Voluntary Withdrawal of Peanut Butter Turtles, Peanut Butter Baskets and Peanut Butter Princesses Due to Possible Health Risk Contact: Customer Service 1-800-530-0505 or 1-800-621-0099
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Madera, CA, January 22, 2009 – Due to the expanded recall of Peanut Butter Corporation’s peanut butter earlier this week, Rain Creek Baking Corporation announces a voluntary withdrawal of Sinbad and Rain Creek Baking Company branded dessert products produced with peanut butter because the products have a potential of being contaminated with Salmonella.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the peanut butter desserts.
The recalled products contain peanut butter manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). PCA is the focus of an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concerning a recent Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter.
Items affected by recall are listed below. Items will be marked with either an “exp” (as in expiration date), “best before” date or a lot code. The expiration date or the best before date will read July 22, 2009 and prior. Lot numbers are 08182 sequentially through 08366 and 09001 sequentially through 09022. These lot numbers can be found on the bottom label next to the ingredient statement.

Items with an asterisk (*) are the only 2009 produced items (when looking for lot numbers). These products were sold in grocery, warehouse and other retail stores throughout the United States. It is possible that some products may have already been purchased by consumers and therefore anyone who has purchased the following products with the expiration dates listed should dispose of the product or return the product to the store for a full refund.
Salmonella is an organism that 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, 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, endocarditis and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Website at http://www.cdc.gov.
Due to this investigation, the company has immediately ceased manufacturing any items with peanut butter and has segregated all finished products of concern. While none of the Sinbad and Rain Creek Baking Company branded products have been identified as contaminated or linked to any illness, Rain Creek Baking Corporation is requesting that the peanut butter dessert items be removed while the FDA continues its investigation to verify the source of a nationwide outbreak.
No other Sinbad® or Rain Creek Baking Corporation® products or flavors are included in this recall.
