Peanut and almond butter recall impacts Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s

A national recall of peanut and almond butter is impacting Greenwich as the products are sold at Whole Foods.

nSpired Natural Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain retail lots of Arrowhead Mills peanut butters, MaraNatha almond butters and peanut butters as well as other nut butters packaged in glass and plastic jars because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.

Accordin to a release sent out from Whole Foods, healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, 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, endocarditis and arthritis.

Whole Foods said the potential risk was brought to nSpired Natural Foods, Inc.’s attention by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration following routine testing. nSpired Natural Foods, Inc. has received reports of four illnesses that may be associated with these specific products. The recall also impacts Trader Joe’s.

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