The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the Jamba Juice Company and the FDA are notifying the public that smoothies containing strawberries which were sold at Jamba Juice stores in Arizona, Southern Nevada and Southern California between November 25 - December 1, 2006, may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Jamba Juice has halted all shipments from the location where the Listeria was found, and removed all strawberries provided by the production facility. To date, no confirmed illnesses have been reported by customers.
