Soynut Butter Company Expands Recall To All Products, Including Granola

 Friday, March 10, 2017


Earlier this week, we shared the news that I.M. Healthy soy butter, a product that’s handy for making PBJs for kids who attend peanut-free schools and daycares, has been linked to E. coli infections, mostly in children. Now the company has recalled all of its products, not just certain batches, and now including its granola as well. In the latest update, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shares that 16 illnesses have been linked to the nut butter, with 14 of those being children under age 18. Eight of the patients have ended up in the hospital, and five have developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a possible E. coli complication that can lead to kidney failure and death.
