April 7, 2020 — Homestead Creamery recalled unsalted butter after a product tested positive for Listeria bacteria contamination.
No illnesses were reported as of the recall date on April 2, 2020, but infections with Listeria can be severe, particularly for people with vulnerable immune systems and pregnant women.
The recalled butter was sold in a 1/2-pound round shape. It was labeled with an expiration date of 04/30 on a sticker on the plastic packaging.
Homestead Creamery is based in Wirtz, Virginia. The creamery sold the butter at a retail store, as well as home delivery and distributors.
The recall was issued after a routine test by Homestead Creamery was positive for Listeria monocytogenes, according to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The company has suspended production while the source of the problem is under investigation.
Consumers who bought unsalted butter with a 4/30 expiration date are urged to return it to the point of purchase for a full refund.
