Ava’s Organic Cashews Recalled

Posted on May 26, 2017 by


Hampton Farms is recalling Ava’s brand Organic Cashews Roasted & Salted 8 oz. tubs distributed in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. We have been notified by our cashew supplier that the cashews used have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. No confirmed illnesses have been reported to public health authorities to date. Routine sampling of a different item from another company revealed positive Listeria monocytogenes results, and a subsequent investigation in their manufacturing environment revealed a contaminated piece of equipment that was also used to produce the ingredient we received.

All affected distributors and retail stores have been notified and the affected products are being removed from store shelves. Fewer than 225 units of this product were offered for retail sale.

This announcement applies only to the Ava’s brand Organic Cashews Roasted & Salted product listed below and does not include any other items or the same item outside of this lot code:

Ava’s Brand 8 oz. Organic Roasted Salted Cashews
