Boooo! Includes Arrowhead Mills peanut butter, Maranatha almond butter, and private label nut butters for Trader Joe's, Kroger, Whole Foods and Safeway. Certain lots are being recalled because of a salmonella risk.

Oh man I was freaking out about this because I just opened up my bottle of TJ almond butter a few hours ago. This really sucks.
The FDA should put the labels on the release, but TJ's labels are here

Thanks for posting this!

FFS. I just bought my first jar of almond butter, from Kroger, in two years last week. And yes, the numbers match. I've already eaten some and haven't died but I guess I should still pitch it and get my refund, huh?

Yes, do it. Salmonellosis is seriously the WORST and I hope you're okay. I thought I was going to die when I had it a few years back. You usually start showing symptoms between 12-72 hours after exposure so just note that you had eaten some today if, heaven forbid, you have to go to the doctor.

I bought it on Friday and ate some as soon as I came home, right out of the jar of course, so I think i'm okay.

My local grocery (Berkeley Bowl) carries their own brand of PB and AB, they had nothing on their website last night but thankfully I just called and they confirmed the recall does not affect their brands. Phew!

DO NOT TAKE MY ALMOND BUTTER FROM ME, I WILL CUT YOU.

I just tried calling the number and all I got was this:

"This call can not be completed, please call later at your convenience."

This sucks! But I thought it affected me and it doesn't. I had peanut butter from whole foods but it looks like it's just the almond butter there. Phew!

I got an automated call from Kroger telling me about the recall and that I can return my jar to the store to get my refund, so i'm just gonna do that.

My local Stop and Shop had signs on the shelf directing people to the Hain's web site. On the site I clicked on the link to Maranatha, and there they had another link about the recall with a phone number to call:

http://www.maranathafoods.com/productnews

a message from maranatha foods
Dear Valued Customers and Loyal Fans,

After routine internal testing conducted by the FDA, nSpired Natural Foods has decided to voluntarily recall certain retail lots of MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters and specific private label nut butters because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

It is with this in mind that we are initiating a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure and are working closely with the FDA to proactively remedy the situation.

At this time all our retail partners have been notified and are removing and destroying the affected MaraNatha products from store shelves and warehouses. We urge anyone who has purchased a product listed below to not consume it and to dispose of it and its container. Please contact us at 1-800-937-7008 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM CDT so that a company representative can provide you with a replacement product or refund, and help with any general inquiries regarding this matter.

We are committed to sharing as much information with our consumers and retail partners as possible and we urge anyone with additional questions to contact us.

Thank you again for your continued trust and faith in us and for making our products a part of your healthy lifestyle.

We have gotten 2 calls from CostCo telling us about the recall. No idea how they know that we bought Maranatha. I wonder if they called all their members.

Kroger has my phone number because I have their reward card, so either they tracked purchases that way or just called everyone with a card.

I took my jar back and got my $12 refund. I was super bummed because I bought myself a jar as a reward for going to the gym four times a week for a whole month, after not buying any for so long because of the price.

Costco has all your purchase history through your membership card. This is also how you can return things a year later without a receipt.
