Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
Hearts&Minds LLC, today announced its inclusion on the American Peanut Council's safe foods list and confirmed its peanut butter products are not affected by the recent FDA recall. Hearts&Minds does not purchase or process any peanuts or peanut paste from Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) and maintains strict quality standards on all its products.
"We're committed to making the foods that you love to eat better for you and with great taste, and this includes our commitment to food quality and safety," said Bob Gonzalez, president of Hearts&Minds. "In addition to our suppliers' and manufacturers' extensive quality assurance checks, we thoroughly and independently test each of our production lots to ensure each batch exceeds regulated safety and quality standards."
The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) traced the source of the recent nationwide outbreak of salmonella poisoning tied to peanut butter products to peanut butter and peanut paste produced at the Peanut Corporation of America's (PCA) Blakely Georgia processing plant.
More than 100 products have been recalled in the widening investigation, but the majority of peanut butter brands are not affected by this recall, including Hearts&Minds.
