Almond and Peanut Butter Recall: 6 Brands So Far





Almond and Peanut Butter Recall: 6 Brands So Far

After four illnesses, six brands are issuing almond and peanut butter recalls. Check your fridge for the brands below.

So far, there are only six brands involved in the almond and peanut butter recall related to four cases of salmonella poisoning. If the last peanut butter recall is anything to go by, this could expand to include more brands.

These are the six brands recalling their almond and peanut butter. If you have one of these brands in your pantry, head over to the FDA recall page for this almond and peanut butter recall, where you can compare the best buy date on your jar to the ones being recalled:

1. Arrowhead Mills

2. Kroger

3. MaraNatha

4. Safeway

5. Trader Joe’s

6. Whole Foods 365

If you do have a recalled jar, you don’t need to take it back to the store. The FDA is recommending that you trash the almond or peanut butter – jar and all – and contact nSpired Natural Foods for a refund. You can call 1-800-937-7008 between 8am and 8pm CST for a replacement or a refund.

    Um… who keeps PB in the fridge?

    • Mal

      The oil in all natural peanut butter will separate from the peanuts unless the peanut butter is stirred up well and then stored in the fridge.

      • Marco

        yeah, so I stir it again if it separates again. No need to keep it in the fridge. Bonus tip: if you keep the jar upside down, you’ll have less problems

      I do! The peanut butter that we buy is on the oily side, but refrigerating thickens it up. I need it thicker so that I can use it to give my dog her allergy medicine.

      Never had a problem. Eat it straight out of the jar with Ritz crackers. Never saw anything growing on it – ever. Always in the cupboard).

  • julie Beutel

    actually peanuts have the possibility of developing a dangerous mold. I keep my pb refrigerated for that reason, (hoping it prevents that).

  • Jackie

    PB is made out of the moldy, discarded peanuts that are too bad for use as whole. If you want to avoid carcinogenic mold, do not eat PB.

    I see no date on this article. Would one of you kindly point it out?

      The FDA link was dated August 19, 2014.
