PORTLAND, Ore. (LAKE OSWEGO REVIEW) — New Seasons Market announced Tuesday that it has initiated a voluntary recall of its New Seasons Market Creamy Almond Butter because the 16-ounce jars may contain peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recall affects includes products with “best-by” dates of June 16, 2017; Aug. 15, 2017; or Aug. 30, 2017. The jars are marked with a UPC code of 4060010401 and were available at all of New Seasons’ 19 locations in Oregon, Southern Washington and Northern California.
Customers can find the UPC Code beneath the bar code on the product label and the best-by date above the label on the clear plastic jar. No other production codes, sizes or varieties of New Seasons Market nut butters are affected by this recall.
The mislabeled jars were discovered by New Seasons staff during a routine stock rotation check. There have been no reports of illness to date, but to ensure customer safety, New Seasons is urging customers with any peanut health concerns or allergies to return the recalled jars for a full refund. Receipts are not required for the return.
