Almond and Peanut butters recalled over possible salmonella contamination

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

Popular nut butters sold across Canada are being recalled due to fears of possible salmonella contamination.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the MaraNatha and Trader Joe’s brand peanut and almond butters could be contaminated with the bacteria, and should be thrown out or returned to the store where you bought them.

The butters – sold widely across Canada in places like Costco and Whole Foods, and also sold in Trader Joe’s and other grocers – and have varying best-before-dates.

Contaminated food might not look or smell spoiled — but it can make you sick.

Salmonella can cause fever, headache, vomiting and abdominal cramps among other things.

There are no reported illnesses associated with the products here in Canada.
