Cub Foods is voluntarily recalling five peanut butter cookie products made in its bakery departments because they may contain peanut butter that has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. The precautionary move follows a nationwide recall issued by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) of Parnell’s Pride brand peanut butter, which is used in some store bakeries.

The products were sold at Cub Foods stores in Minnesota and Iowa and are marked with a sell-by-date through and including Jan. 26, 2009. The identified items have not been directly linked to the salmonella outbreak, and there have been no reported cases of the illness. However, because customer safety is a top priority, Cub Foods has voluntarily recalled the products.

This product recall includes all:

  • Cub Foods Peanut Butter Cookies, 12ct /12 oz.,
    UPC No.: 41303-63070
  • Cub Foods Peanut Butter Cookies, 24ct /24 oz., UPC No.: 41303-63003
  • Cub Foods Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies, 18ct /11 oz., UPC No.: 41303-67091
  • Cub Foods Peanut Butter Blossom Tray-9 inch 36ct /22 oz., UPC No.: 41303-63056
  • Cub Foods Iced Peanut Butter Cookies w/ Chocolate Icing, 12ct /12 oz., UPC No.: 41303-63028

Customers who have purchased the affected products should bring the product back to a Cub Foods store location for a full refund or exchange.
