Salinas CA-based Cleugh’s Frozen Foods Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of SunOpta Inc, has voluntarily recalled frozen strawberries sold exclusively to Jamba Juice for use in strawberry smoothies. Sold in stores in Arizona, Nevada, and Southern California from Nov 25, 2006, to Dec 1, 2006, the berries may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The strawberry contamination was identified by Cleugh’s, which then notified Jamba Juice. The recalled products have been removed from the Jamba Juice stores in the affected areas and are no longer being used to make smoothies. No suspected illnesses have been reported to date. SunOpta and Jamba Juice have notified federal and state authorities of the problem and are cooperating in the investigation.

In other news, Jamba Inc has announced the completion of the merger between Services Acquisition Corp International (SACI) and Jamba Juice Co. Under terms of the agreement and plan of merger, SACI acquired all of the outstanding securities of Jamba Juice Co, which has become a wholly owned subsidiary of SACI. The company has changed its name to Jamba Inc.
