Melaleuca Issues Voluntary Recall on Peanut Products

Melaleuca, Inc., of Idaho Falls, Idaho, has issued a voluntary recall of select lots of AttainŽ Nutrition Bars Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor, ProFlex15™ Protein Bars Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor, and ProFlex20™ Protein Bars Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor in response to an expanded recall by Peanut Corporation of America ( PCA ). The FDA is investigating an outbreak of Salmonella linked to PCA's Blakely, GA peanut and peanut product manufacturing facility.

Melaleuca has always taken seriously its responsibility to safeguard its products against contamination from bacteria such as Salmonella. Salmonella is not to be taken lightly. 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. It can cause flu like symptoms in healthy people. 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.
