August 20, 2014

nSpired Natural Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling 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 because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The potential risk was brought to the company’s attention by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration following routine testing. The company has received reports of four illnesses that may be associated with these specific products. The company is currently working with customers and retailers to remove and destroy products with the affected use-by dates from store shelves and warehouses.

Products were distributed across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, and Dominican Republic. The products also were available for purchase on the Internet.
