Starbucks Brand Protein Bistro Box Recalled


On October 6, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration announced that Flying Food Group has recalled the Starbucks brand Protein Bistro Box with “Enjoy By dates” between August 10, 2012 and October 6, 2012.  The Bistro Box contains 0.5 oz Honey Peanut Butter squeeze packs from Justin’s Nut Butter which were recalled in association to the Sunland, Inc. recall.  The product may be contaminated with Salmonella.  
The FDA reports that the recalled products were only sold in Starbucks retail stores in the following states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and California.  The products were sold between August 8, 2012 and October 4, 2012 and have now been removed from all stores.  The products have a UPC number of 762111881502. 
The Starbucks brand Protein Bistro Box comes in a clear plastic container.  The recalled Honey Peanut Butter squeeze packs are labeled with the Justin’s brand on the inside.  
If you have a Bistro Box in your possession, do not eat any of the Peanut Butter squeeze packs.  Salmonella is an organism that can lead to serious and sometimes fatal infections.  The organism poses the most danger to young children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems.  Healthy adults can still experience symptoms like fever, diarrhea (possibly bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.  
Healthy adults will usually experience symptoms for 4 to 7 days and the infection will go away by itself.  However, if you believe you’ve contracted Salmonella, you need to contact your health care provider immediately because Salmonella can cause dangerous symptoms in some cases.  
If you have any questions about the recall, you can contact the Flying Food Group at (773) 387-8078 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
