Chattanooga Bakery Issues Peanut Butter Crunch MoonPie Recall

Oct. 8, 2012

In an abundance of caution, Chattanooga Bakery, Inc., maker of MoonPie® snacks, announced a voluntary recall of its Peanut Butter Crunch products with "Best By" dates of 10/29/12, 12/10/12, 01/07/13, 01/29/13, 02/26/13, 03/25/13, and 04/29/13 (these are expanded dates from the original recall announcement).

No other Chattanooga Bakery / MoonPie / LookOut products are affected by this recall. If you are a direct account with Chattanooga Bakery, please notify all of your stores / retailer outlets. If you are a wholesaler / distributor, please make sure you notify all your retailer customers who, in turn, should notify all stores / retail outlets.

The voluntary recall was initiated immediately upon learning that our peanut butter supplier Sunland, Inc. has issued a recall. Sunland has stated that twenty-nine people have reported Salmonella Bredeney PFGE matching illnesses in approximately 18 states. These illnesses were associated with Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, which was produced by Sunland, Inc.

Chattanooga Bakery's Peanut Butter Crunch products (9.6 ounce multipack and 2.4 ounce twin pack) have not been associated with any of the reported illnesses. Regardless, the company is taking this precautionary step to protect customers and their families from any possible risk.
