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.
