    TORONTO, Feb. 13 /CNW/ - Slim-Fast(R) is recalling one Slim-Fast Meal
Replacement bar product because it may contain peanuts that are being recalled
by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). The peanut recall was ordered by the
Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) on February 12, 2009, as a
result of unsanitary conditions at the PCA Plainview, Texas, facility, which
could have compromised the peanuts.

    Product Name and Description: Slim-Fast Optima(R) Milk Chocolatey Peanut
    Meal Replacement Bar - sold in paperboard boxes, 6 bars per box, 60 g
    each, with various best-if-used by dates.

    The UPC code is located on the bottom of the box: UPC: 68400 16215

    Consumers who have any of the product are asked to discard it and call
1-877-270-7397, which is operational 24 hours a day, for information on the
recall. In addition, a consumer services representative is available between
the hours of 8:30 AM and 6:00 PM EST.
