According to the FDA, Hampton Farms has recalled certain units of Ava’s brand Organic Cashews Roasted & Salted sold in eight (8) ounce tubs and distributed in the US states of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

Hampton Farms has been notified by its primary supplier of Cashew Nuts that the Cashews used in the above Cashew Nut Tubs have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. No confirmed illnesses have been reported to public health authorities to date. Routine sampling of a different item from another company revealed positive Listeria monocytogenes results, and a subsequent investigation in the manufacturing environment revealed a contaminated piece of equipment that was also used to produce the ingredient received by Hampton Farms.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Cashew Nuts, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Cashews to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
