Product Name:

Follow Your Heart Sweet & Sour Tofu (10 oz)

Batch # / UPC:

0-49568-01430-2

Reason for Recall:

Earth Island is conducting a voluntary recall on its distribution of several Follow Your Heart brand products as a precautionary measure due to possible Salmonella contamination of a natural flavor from one of its suppliers, Basic Food Flavors of Las Vegas, Nev. No illnesses to date have been reported.

Salmonella is an organism that 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.

Consumers who have purchased any of these products are urged to return them for a full refund. Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Sheena Bliss at (818) 725-2820 or via e-mail at Sheena@followyourheart.com between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. PST.
