Peanut Butter and Almond Butter Recalled Due to Salmonella Concern

Peanut Butter Recall

nSpired Natural Foods issued a voluntary peanut butter and almond butter recall Tuesday because their products may be contaminated with salmonella and may pose a health risk.

The company said that there have been reports of four illnesses that may be related to the nut butters. They were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills peanut butters and MaraNatha almond butters and peanut butters.

Also being recalled were some lots of private label almond butter from grocers Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Kroger and Safeway.

Best-by dates range from Dec. 4, 2014 through July 25, 2015, but vary depending on the product.

The use-by date can be found on the top of the jar lid. The Company is currently working with customers and retailers to remove and destroy products with the above use-by dates from store shelves and warehouses.

A total of 45 production lots are affected.

They were sold in Canada, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates as well as the U.S.

“nSpired Natural Foods Inc. is committed to producing the highest quality products and our top priority is the safety of our consumers. For this reason we are initiating this voluntary recall of the products… as a precautionary measure,” the company said in a recall notice.

Symptoms of salmonella are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. These symptoms develop within one to three days after exposure to the bacterium and may last for up to a week. While anyone can become ill from salmonella, health officials say the risk of infection is particularly high for children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

Consumers should throw away the product and call the company at 1-800-937-7008 for a replacement or refund.
