February 25, 2009

- All KIND Products Completely Safe, Include No Ingredients from PCA -

NEW YORK, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ — Today KIND Snacks reconfirmed that it is not affected by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) recall, and PCA does not supply any peanut products used in any variety of KIND Fruit + Nut Bars or KIND Plus Nutrition Bars.

FDA and other regulatory agencies have indicated that PCA is the focus of their investigation concerning a recent salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter. KIND does not and has never sourced any ingredients from PCA, and we regularly conduct testing in our facilities to assure compliance with the highest standards for food safety and quality.
