Several nSpired Natural Foods Inc. peanut and nut butter products sold at stores nationwide, including some almond butters sold at specialty grocers Trader Joe’s Co. and Whole Foods Markets IP LP, have been recalled for possible salmonella contamination. The company, a subsidiary of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., issued the recall after being notified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that the potential risk of salmonella contamination was discovered after routine testing. The recall affects certain retail lots of Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and other specific private-label nut butters packaged in plastic and glass jars.
As we have previously reported, Salmonella can cause serious infections that manifest themselves in symptoms such as fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, and can be fatal in young children, elderly or others with weakened immune systems. Both companies noted that customers who purchased the recalled products may receive a full refund. The affected products were distributed across the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and the Dominican Republic. The products were also available on the Internet.
