WASHINGTON — The FDA announced Monday that nSpired Natural Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain retail lots of peanut butter, including some sold at Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and Kroger, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The company is recalling Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters and specific private label nut butters (listed below) packaged in glass and plastic jars.

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.

The FDA said the company has received reports of four illnesses that may be associated with these specific products.

The use-by date can be found on the top of the jar lid.

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.

Consumers do not need to return the product to the store where it was purchased. Instead, consumers are urged to dispose of the recalled product and its container. Please contact the company at 1-800-937-7008 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM CST for a replacement or refund, and with general inquiries.
