UPDATE: Inspired Organics Recalls Nut & Seed Butters for Listeria Risk

January 2019 — Inspired Organics has recalled almond butter, tahini butter, and sunflower butter due to a possible risk of contamination with Listeria.

Organic Tahini Butter and Sunflower Butter Recall

In January 2019, the FDA announced a recall for certain Oskri® and Thrive® sunflower butter and tahini butter after an unnamed “customer” tested a random product and it was positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that causes food poisoning.

What is the Problem?

No illnesses were reported, but Listeria infections can be very serious, especially for young children, older adults, and people with weak immune systems. In pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery, or infection of a newborn.

  • Thrive Sunflower Butter LOT #233, and a UPC number of 671635704825 — Distributed in Indiana.

All of the recalled products were sold in 16-oz jars.

What Should I Do?

The products have a long shelf-life, with expiration dates on products more than 1 year in the future. Oskri is urging anyone with the recalled products to immediately destroy them.
