From a Press Release….

TURKEY HILL DAIRY ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL OF SELECT ICE CREAM FLAVORS
FOLLOWING EXPANDED FDA INVESTIGATION OF PEANUT CORPORATION OF AMERICA

LANCASTER COUNTY, PA (January 30, 2009) – Turkey Hill Dairy of Lancaster
County, PA, is voluntarily recalling six select ice cream and frozen yogurt
items because the products contain ingredients that have been voluntarily
recalled by our suppliers.

Turkey Hill’s recalled products contain peanut pieces sold by Peanut
Corporation of America (PCA), the current focus of an ongoing Salmonella
investigation by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). On
January 28, the FDA expanded its investigation to include all peanuts
processed by the PCA at its plant in Blakely, GA, since January 1, 2007,
including dry and oil-roasted peanuts, granulated peanuts and peanut meal,
in addition to peanut butter and peanut paste, which were the initial focus
of the investigation.

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. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often
experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and
abdominal pain. 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.

This recall does NOT include any Turkey Hill products including peanut
butter. Turkey Hill products do not include any peanut butter or peanut
paste produced by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), the initial focus
of the FDA’s investigation.

Turkey Hill is voluntarily recalling six items following the FDA’s expanded
investigation. These products have been distributed to grocery, food and
convenience stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana,
Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire,
New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia.
