Important note regarding the salmonella outbreak

To our cherished customers,

Recently, there has been an outbreak of salmonella that has lead to the deaths of seven Americans. This letter is to assure you, in no uncertain terms, that no product in the ORGANIC FOOD BAR line is, or will be – in any way – affected by this outbreak.

Here is what has occurred: Several products containing peanut butter have been recalled as the U.S. government investigates the outbreak of salmonella food poisoning.

As of Wednesday evening, 491 people had been reported infected by a salmonella outbreak by public health authorities in 43 of the 50 U.S. states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on its website.

Salmonella can cause abdominal cramping, diarrhea and fever and it can kill the very young and very old.

This outbreak impresses upon us, yet again, that commercial, conventional food production too often puts our health, and the health of our children, at grave risk.

We will say, with categorical confidence, that ORGANIC FOOD BAR products, and ORGANIC FOOD BAR KID’S products, are completely safe. ORGANIC FOOD BAR products will not be affected by this outbreak, because they are 100% peanut-free and contain no dairy, wheat or soy.

Moreover, ORGANIC FOOD BAR, Inc. goes to extraordinary lengths and expense to ensure our 100% certified organic ingredients are sourced from the finest, highest-quality, cleanest and most trustworthy sources in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Our products are handcrafted on site in a certified organic and kosher facility that adheres to superlative standards of quality, unsurpassed in the industry.

That is why you don’t see our paid ads on television or in fancy magazines: we put our product, and our people, over our promotion. We channel every spare resource into our product. We do this because you are part of the ORGANIC FOOD BAR Family, and we genuinely care about each and every customer like no other bar company does.

You not find ORGANIC FOOD BAR products embroiled in any “food scandal,” be it tainted milk powder from China or a salmonella outbreak from a U.S. plant, because we eat these bars ourselves – and we feed them to our children. And, we go to the necessary lengths to ensure that ORGANIC FOOD BAR products will remain safe and above the “fray.”

When you eat an ORGANIC FOOD BAR, you are placing great trust in us; and we work tirelessly to honor that trust. It is that simple.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, or any other issue, please feel free to contact us at any time: 1.800.246.4685.

From our family to yours, we wish you the very best of health,

No one will suffer and get infected if we let our food to be tested. This could be happened through the use of elisakit. Many people worldwide are using this because of its accuracy and great help.
