Following routine testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a potential Salmonella contamination risk was brought to the attention of nSpired Natural Foods, Inc.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
To date, nSpired has received reports of four illnesses that may be associated with these specific products.
Certain retail lots of Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters and specific private label nut butters packaged in glass and plastic jars have been recalled.
These products were distributed nationally to numerous large supermarket and grocery chains including Kroger, Safeway, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, among others. They were also available for purchase on the internet.
What To Do:
Do not return the product to the store where it was purchased. Instead, dispose of the recalled product and its container. For more information, contact nSpired at (800) 937-7008.
