Listeria Attorney: Another butter recall issued for Listeria
Another recall has been issued for organic nut butters. The most recall is for a variety of Wholesome Pantry Organic nut butters that may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. Wakefern Food Corp., based in Keasbey, New Jersey, issued the recall out of concern that the nut butters may pose a health risk to consumers.
Wakefern’s supplier, Oskri Organics Corporation of Lake Mills, Wisconsin, notified the company that several nut butters produced in the Oskri facility had tested positive for listeria. The potentially contaminated nut butters were sold in ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, and Dearborn Market stores located in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Delaware, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
Five varieties of Wholesome Pantry Organic nut butters are included in the recall. All are packed in 16-ounce plastic jars, with best by dates on or before June 2020. The recall includes:
According to Listeria Attorney Ron Simon: “ Listeria is most dangerous to the elderly, those with weak immune systems, and to pregnant women due to Listeria’s impact of fetal growth and development, even causing still-births and miscarriages.”
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Consumers who have any of these nut butters in their homes should not eat them. Rather, they should dispose of them properly or return them to the store where they were purchased.
