FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- January 23, 2009 – Supreme Protein, Inc. is updating its announcement that it is voluntarily recalling the lots identified below of Supreme Protein® brand Peanut Butter Crunch Bars and Caramel Nut Bars. These bars are being recalled out of an abundance of caution because they contain peanut paste which has the potential of being exposed to Salmonella at the Georgia manufacturing facility that makes this ingredient. Although extensive laboratory testing has indicated no Salmonella contamination to date in any Supreme Protein bars (including the lot #’s listed below), we are taking this step as a precautionary measure to ensure the utmost safety of our products. Supreme Protein, Inc. is voluntarily recalling specific lots of the following products that contain peanut paste manufactured at the Georgia peanut butter plant:

-- Supreme Protein® brand Peanut Butter Crunch Bars (20, 431 and 86 gram sizes)
-- Supreme Protein® brand Caramel Nut Bars (20, 50* and 96 gram sizes)
-- Supreme Protein® brand Caramel Nut (Energy) Bars

Both the Ohio manufacturing facility and the peanut paste used in these bars have been tested extensively for the presence of Salmonella and to date, all test results have been negative. In addition, Supreme Protein has not received any consumer complaints of symptoms related to Salmonella.

Supreme Protein requests that consumers check the lot numbers of any of the above-listed products they have purchased. The lot number can be found under the fold on the back of the wrapper of the individual bars and on top of each box of bars. If consumers find that they have these products in their possession marked with any of these specific lot numbers, they are asked not to consume the products. Consumers seeking a replacement or refund for recalled products should visit the company’s website at http://www.supremeprotein.com/. Other lot numbers of Supreme Protein products are not affected by this recall. Supreme Protein intends to update this notice as the situation develops.

Although all of the numerous tests of the peanut paste used in the products have been negative and the company is not aware of any detrimental effects associated with these products, Supreme Protein is taking this extremely conservative position out of an abundance of caution.

People infected with Salmonella can have some or all of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious disease, including headache, joint pain, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

These products are being removed from retail stores for the time being.
