FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Toledo, OH -- December 04, 2006 -- Jamba Juice of San Francisco, CA in consultation with the FDA is notifying the public that smoothies containing strawberries which were sold at its Jamba Juice stores in Arizona, Southern Nevada and Southern California between November 25 - December 1, 2006, may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes, 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 individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The strawberry contamination came to light when one of Jamba Juice's suppliers Cleugh's Frozen Foods of Salinas, CA - notified the company that frozen strawberries from one of Cleugh's facilities tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. (See "Cleugh's Frozen Foods Inc. Recalls Frozen Strawberries Sold to Jamba Juice.")

In an effort to fully protect its customers, Jamba Juice immediately and voluntarily halted all shipments from the location where the Listeria was found and removed all strawberries provided by the production facility, including berries not believed to be impacted. Every store that received shipments from the supplier's affected location have been cleaned and disinfected.

To date, no confirmed illnesses have been reported by customers to either Jamba Juice's consumer help line or store management, although the company is closely monitoring the situation.

If any Jamba Juice customer purchased a product with strawberries from one of its affected stores between November 25 and December 1, and has concerns especially those who have experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms they should call the Jamba Juice consumer help line at 1-877-464-5689 or consult their healthcare provider.
