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.
Customers with questions or who would like product replacements or refunds may contact (800) 993-4367 or email help@nutiva.com.
