Salmonella Scare Triggers Nut Recall

Routine sampling processes helped uncover the potential contamination.

Product Recall

NOW Health Group, Inc. of Bloomingdale, Illinois is voluntarily recalling its Real Food® Raw Macadamia Nuts due to potential Salmonella contamination. This lot was distributed online and in retail stores nationwide.

No other NOW Real Food® products are affected or are involved in this recall. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product. NOW became aware of the potential contamination after routine sampling in a later lot of finished product (which contained the same lot of raw material as used in the recalled lot) found the bacteria. This later finished product lot was not released and remains in a quarantined state.

NOW has provided information on this recall to all its retailers and has encouraged retailers to make every effort to contact their customers to facilitate the return of affected products. Consumers who have purchased the recalled Raw Macadamia Nuts should stop using the product immediately and return it to place of purchase for a full refund..
