William Bolthouse and the Bolthouse Foundation

There was much speculation and confusion surrounding the associaton and relationship between Bolthouse Farms and The Bolthouse Foundation. While the two organizations share the name "Bolthouse", the connection ends there.

According to the Bolthouse Foundation official website:

No members of The Bolthouse Foundation have a financial interest in Bolthouse Farms, and The Bolthouse Foundation receives neither financial support nor benefits from the profits of Bolthouse Farms. Bolthouse Farms company profits are not used to support the The Bolthouse Foundation.As stated on the Bolthouse Foundation website: [] ]

The division between the two entities became evidently clear in October, 2008 when an article in The L.A. TimesBolthouse Farms article in the L.A. Times: [,0,4032084.story] ] ran announcing that the "boycott" of Bolthouse Farms had ended. The advocacy group, "Californians Against Hate", had previously urged consumers to not support Bolthouse Farms. As of October 9, 2008, Californians Against Hate campaign manager Fred Karst issued a statement saying that the "Don't Buy Bolthouse" campaign had ended.Statement from Californians Against Hate: [] ]

Carrot botulism outbreak

In September 2006, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency ordered a voluntarily recall on the Bolthouse Farms "100 per cent Carrot Juice" and other Bolthouse Farms products due to several cases of botulism resulting from consumption of the products. On September 29, 2006 the United States Food and Drug Administration recommended that Georgia residents not purchase Bolthouse Farms carrot juice and, the same day, warned consumers not to purchase Bolthouse Farms products dated November 11, 2006 or earlier."Consumers to blame for botulism outbreak, juice maker says" CBC News, Wednesday, October 11, 2006. Online: [] ]

The warning and recalls were due to reported cases of consumption of the beverages resulting in six cases of botulism in the United States and Canada. Two cases in Toronto, Canada resulted in paralysis; three cases recorded in Georgia, United States resulted in respiratory failure, with the patients requiring ventilators; one case recorded in Florida resulted in hospitalization. The patient in Florida was last reported to be unresponsive since mid-September 2006. "Toxic carrot juice paralyzes 2 in Toronto" CBC News, Monday, October 9, 2006. Online: [] ]

In response, Bolthouse Farms claimed that the illness was the fault of the consumers who had failed to properly refrigerate the products. The US Food and Drug Administration cited that this may not be the case and an investigation continues. [ [ Botulism Associated with Commercial Carrot Juice --- Georgia and Florida, September 2006] from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.] Bolthouse Farms has subsequently released an FAQ regarding the event.The Bolthouse Farms Carrot Botulism FAQ is available online here: [] ]
