TreeHouse Foods Amends Best By Dates in Voluntary Product Recall of Macaroni
& Cheese Cup Products

TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS) recently announced an amendment to the
Best By Dates in its December 11, 2016, press release related to its voluntary
recall of certain macaroni and cheese cup products. The products contain
cheddar cheese seasoning which may be contaminated with
Salmonella.

This follows notification from our supplier that the milk powder used in
the seasoning has the potential for
Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most
individuals recover without treatment. In some cases, diarrhea may be
so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants
and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

Product was distributed nationwide through retail stores. The following
products are affected by this recall:
