The voluntary recall The SoyNut Butter Company issued for its I.M. Healthy SoyNut butter products in March of 2017 raised awareness of the potential E.coli contamination in these butters and likely pushed many consumers to throw out any remaining containers of the product in their homes, thereby protecting them and their families from contracting food poisoning illness.
In a recent blog post, we discussed the E.Coli outbreak that affected 12 victims in five states who had consumed nut butters and granola products produced by The SoyNut Butter Company. By the end of March 2017, the number of people impacted by the E.Coli outbreak had risen to 29. The victims were in 12 states: Oregon, California, Washington, Arizona, Maryland, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Missouri, Illinois, Florida, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
