Sun Orchard, Expands Juice Recall

Tempe, AZ (SafetyAlerts) - Sun Orchard, Inc. announced today that it is expanding the recall of certain unpasteurized orange juice because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The new product added to the recall bears the "Enjoy By" date of 11/20/99 and was distributed to hotels, restaurants and other food service outlets in Illinios, Kansas and Michigan.

"Sunorchard is recalling this additional lot at the request of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)." Jim Kurtz, a spokesman for the company said, "This new lot of juice has not tested positive for Salmonella but since the dates are between the other recalled dates we've agreed to recall it."

Consumption of foods contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial food borne illnesses. Salmonella infections can be life threatening especially for infants, the frail or elderly people and persons with chronic disease, HIV infection or persons taking chemotherapy. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may be chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.

To view the first recall in this series or the nationwide warning issued by the FDA, follow the links below.
