2/6/2009

CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid on Friday announced the voluntary recall of two of its products containing peanuts that were sold in many Rite Aid stores. The company has been notified by the manufacturer that these products contain peanuts from Peanut Corporation of America, which is the focus of a Food and Drug Administration investigation into potential salmonella contamination of peanut products.

Rite Aid is not aware of any reported cases of illness related to these products, and it has issued this voluntary recall as a precautionary measure.

Rite Aid has already instructed all of its stores to remove Rite Aid Chocolate Peanuts (15 oz., UPC 1182235538) and Rite Aid Bridge Mix (15 oz., UPC 1182237539).
