Mountain Man Nut & Fruit Co. is voluntarily recalling select products containing shelled hazelnuts (filberts).
Mountain Man is initiating this recall in conjunction with the recall from Kunze Fams due to the fact that raw hazelnuts could have been exposed to salmonella and become contaminated. During routine inspection of the hazelnut shelling facility one salmonella test came back positive. In the interest of the safety of our customers, Mountain Man is requesting that customers return any of the lot codes below to their place of purchase for replacement or refund.
Mountain Man has not received any complaints of consumer illness associated with these products. This is strictly a precautionary recall to insure the safety of our customers.
All of the below is product that would have been manufactured and packaged since November 1, 2009 and December 17, 2009. Product purchased before or after these dates should not be affected by this recall.
