Nature’s Path Organic Coconut & Cashew Butter Crunchy Granola
Best Before Date:
2018 MR 02
This voluntary recall is based on a recall notice from a Nature’s Path organic cashew supplier regarding the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. To date there have been no reports of consumer illness associated with this recall. Out of an abundance of caution, Nature’s Path is voluntarily recalling the lot referenced above.
Nature’s Path has notified Costco Canada and this recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency
Consumers who may have purchased the recalled product are urged to dispose of them or return to Costco where they were purchased for a full refund. Consumers may contact Nature’s Path 1-866-880-7284 (between Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm PST) or email at ConsumerServices@naturespath.com
