3 companies issue voluntary recalls

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.

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

Aurora Products, Inc. is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of certain lots of Natural Walnuts and Trail Mixes containing walnuts because they have the potential to contain Salmonella which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), 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 such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Product was distributed nationwide through retail stores. Customers with questions can contact Aurora Products, Inc. for further information at 800-898-1048 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

Amy's Kitchen, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 73,897 cases of select products. This recall is based on a recall notice from one of Amy's organic spinach suppliers that Amy's may have received organic spinach with the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to dispose them or return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers may also call Amy's at 707-781-7535 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific) Monday, through Friday.
