Mountain Man Nut & Fruit Co., Salem, OR is recalling various Trail, Nut and Snack Mixes, and Honey Roast Peanuts, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The PRODUCTS WERE manufactured using peanuts/peanut products recalled by Peanut Corporation of American because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which 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.

These products were distributed through direct delivery and retail stores throughout Oregon.
