Californian company Jule’s Foods announced the voluntary recall of its plant-based food products due to possible contamination by Salmonella. The problem appears to stem potentially from the use of cashews, but the source is still a mystery at this point. The company notes that it is working with the FDA and that the recall is accompanied by a Salmonella probe from the CDC and the FDA.
The recall was recently published by the FDA; he notes that some cashew-based brie products from Jule’s Foods tested positive for Salmonella through the California Department of Public Health. The products have been sold in several states of the USA, including Texas, New York, Ohio, Nevada, California and others.
However, the recall notes that these herbal items were mainly distributed to independently owned supermarkets. Remembered items include the classic Jule cashew brie, cashew brie truffle, cashew brie garlic, artichoke spinach sauce and vegan ranch dressing.
The company, due to its vegetable nature, uses cashew nuts instead of dairy products for these food products. The list of UPCs related to these collected items can be found on the FDA website here. The company has stopped producing these food products and consumers who have purchased them must return them to the store for a refund or throw them away.
This recall joins some other food-related recalls in the United States, the last of which two related to Enoki mushrooms possibly contaminated with Listeria. Consumers can keep an eye out for product recalls on the FDA website, while the CDC also lists any outbreaks that may be related to contaminated food products.
