Nutiva, an Organic Superfoods company, has initiated a voluntary product recall of the following O'Coconut™ products after being notified by supplier that samples of a raw material in this product have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. "We are choosing to voluntarily recall three of our O'Coconut items as a precautionary measure to provide the safest products for our customers," states John Roulac, Nutiva's CEO.
The affected products include:
18 FEB 16
O'Coconut™ Hemp & Chia
24 FEB 16
20 FEB 16
The latter two items (BAR202 & BAR302) were distributed via Nutiva.com or as samples only.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.
Consumers who have purchased these items are urged not eat the product, and to dispose of it or return it to the where it was originally purchased. Please be aware that we have received no customer complaints to date about any of the above listed products. Nutiva has taken these steps strictly as a precautionary measure to assure our customers of our commitment to quality. No other Nutiva items are impacted by this recall.
