       FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- January 28, 2009 – Glendale, California based Uncle Eddies Vegan Cookies announced today a voluntary recall of Uncle Eddies Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookies as a precautionary measure due to the expanded recall of Peanut Corporation of America's Blakely, Georgia facility, which is the subject of an FDA investigation concerning the recent salmonella outbreak.

      The recalled cookies contain peanut butter supplied by Peanut Corporation of America. There are no reported illnesses associated with these peanut butter cookies, which are sold at health food, and grocery stores nationwide. Included in the recall are:

      Uncle Eddies Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookies

      * 12 oz. Bag (UPC 40559 03302)
      * 3.75 oz. individually wrapped (UPC 40559 03305)

      Recalled date codes include the code for peanut butter, 2 and a Julian date.
      Example: 21509 is read as the 15th day of 2009.
      Recalled dates are: 221408 thru and including 21509 (READ AS THE 214TH DAY OF 2008 THRU AND INCLUDING THE 15TH DAY OF 2009.)

      No other Uncle Eddies Vegan cookies are included in the recall.

      Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly, 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 Web site at www.cdc.gov (or call 1-800-232-4636). For a list of various company recalls and for more information on the FDA's ongoing investigation, please visit the FDA's website at www.fda.gov.

      The safety and quality of Uncle Eddies Vegan products are of utmost importance to us. As a result, Uncle Eddies is destroying any remaining supply of product received from Peanut Corp. of America and has discontinued using them as a supplier. Consumers who have purchased any of the affected peanut butter cookies are advised not to consume these items and may return the items to the store they were purchased from. Consumers with additional questions on the recall may contact Jeff Jacobs at (818)549-4184 beginning January 30th.
