Natural products can have amazing health benefits and great taste, but when they pose a threat to consumers they need to be recalled. This recently happened to batches of almond and sunflower butter.


An American brand, Inspired Organics, has had both their sunflower butter and almond butter products recalled by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The reason why the FDA issued this recall is over concerns relating to Listeria, which is a deadly bacteria.

Both the sunflower butter and the almond butter tested positive for Listeria. The FDA also announced that anyone who has recently had either of these products should monitor themselves for symptoms.

Although it must be taken into consideration that the symptoms can take up to 70 days to appear after eating the infected product.


Listeria infection can present itself in the following symptoms: fever, headaches, vomiting, muscle pains, and nausea.

People who are suffering from cancer, weak immune systems, or are pregnant are at an increased risk.



Sunflower and almond butter are not the only items being recalled. Recently romaine lettuce, cauliflower, and red lettuce were recalled due to an E. coli outbreak on a California farm.


This outbreak has resulted in 23 people being hospitalized and 59 being sick. The farm in question released a statement in this regard:

“The recall was initiated after it was discovered that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli O157: H7. Filtered and treated water from the reservoir may have come in contact with the product after it was harvested.”

The farm, Adam Bros. Farming, is only one source of the breakout and not all of their products have been affected, only those which have been recalled.
