FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Oklahoma City, OK -- August 16, 2004 -- On Friday, Neighbors Coffee of Oklahoma City, OK, announced a recall of 25 flavors of whole bean, nut flavored coffees that contain undeclared peanuts, hazelnuts, almonds, and/or pecans. Recalled coffee includes Caffeinated, European Decaffeinated, and Swiss Water Decaffeinated whole bean, nut flavored coffees in 8 oz, 12 oz, 1 lb., and 5 lb. packaging. Neighbors Coffee announces today the expansion of this recall to include 2 lb. bulk packages of caffeinated and decaffeinated Amaretto Tea and Cherry Almond Tea because the teas contain undeclared almonds. People who have allergies to peanuts and/or tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these coffee and tea products.

Recalled teas were sold nationwide in bulk bins at retail stores. Recalled teas were also sold by mail order, Internet, and telephone orders. The Amaretto Tea and Cherry Almond Tea were produced from 2-12-04 through 8-12-04. Both teas, packaged in 2 pound bags, are marked with lot numbers 0434 through 2254 on the front, bottom center of the package.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the almond-containing teas were distributed in packaging that did not declare almonds as an ingredient. No illnesses have been reported to date as a result of this labeling error.

Neighbors Coffee has corrected the problem by voluntarily eliminating any and all tree nut additives in their flavored teas.

Consumers with allergies to almonds who have purchased Amaretto or Cherry Almond bulk tea are urged to return them to the place of purchase for an exchange or full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-299-9016.
