Specific lots of Nutty Infusions nut butters are being recalled due to possibility of Listeria contamination. The FDA found evidence that a supplier’s facility may have been contaminated during production of the nut butters. Only two flavors of the Ellyndale Nutty Infusions are affected by this recall: Roasted Almond Butter and Mango Chili Cashew Butter.

Frozen Scomber Fish Recalled
“The Duck” brand of “frozen steamed scomber fish” is under recall. During routine sampling, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets found that the frozen fish had not been properly eviscerated before it was processed. The viscera is the most likely part of the fish to cause concentrated amounts of Clostridium botulinum spores which cause botulism.
Botulism is a serious illness that attacks the nervous system. Botulism symptoms include double or blurred vision, drooping eyelids, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, dry mouth, and muscle weakness. Symptoms usually show 18 to 36 hours after consuming contaminated food but can begin as soon as six hours after eating.
The recalled frozen fish have distributed to retail stores across the nation. The product in question comes in a styrofoam tray covered in clear plastic. The red label, which includes nutrition information, is marked “Product of Thailand.” UPC is 040459097206.
The FDA encourages consumers to return packages of steamed scomber fish to place of purchase. Questions may be directed to Willis Ocean Inc: 718-386-3053.
Protein Bars Recalled
Bulletproof 360 Inc is recalling specific protein bar and protein bite products due to a potential Listeria contamination. A cashew butter supplier recently discovered Listeria contamination in their facility. This recall is out of an abundance of caution, as the protein bars and bites were processed in a different part of the facility.
From April 7 to June 12, the recalled protein bars were distributed both to retail stores and online. All states may be affected as well as the following countries: Australia, Bahrain, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Finland, France, Germany, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Virgin Islands (USA).
Consumers should view the protein product recall to determine whether or not they purchased recalled products. The company is shipping replacement protein bars and bites.
Dog Treats Recalled
Specific lots of Loving Pets dog treats are under recall due to potential Salmonella contamination. Salmonella is dangerous both to pets and the humans that handle the treats. Salmonella symptoms in humans include abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Pets suffering from Salmonella infections may also exhibit diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and lethargy.
Check the dog treats recall on the FDA’s website to determine whether or not you have bought an affected product.
Rawhide Dog Chews Recalled
Multiple brands of rawhide dog chews are being recalled by United Pet Group after finding that certain facilities are using a quaternary ammonium compound mixture during the manufacturing process. The United States has not approved the compound for use in producing rawhide chews for dogs. It is, however, approved to clean food processing equipment.
Diarrhea and vomiting has been reported in connection with this dog rawhide recall. Consumers primarily complain of the unpleasant smell exhibited by affected products. Recalled dog rawhides were distributed to retail stores nationwide as well as through online outlets.
American Beefhide, Digest-eeze, and Healthy Hide were all included in the recall. Consumers should view the rawhide dog chews recall to identify recalled products.
