Consumer Alert: Macadamia Nuts, Cashews Recalled Over Possible Listeria Contamination

Two different brands of nuts have been recalled due to possible listeria contamination, CNN reports.

Simple Truth Dry Roasted Macadamia Nuts and Ava's Organic Cashews Roasted & Salted are involved in two separate recalls, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The macadamia nuts were sold at Kroger, Bakers, Gerbes and Dillons stores in six states — Ohio, Kentucky, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Indiana — in a clear 12-ounce plastic package with a May 2, 2018, expiration date on the side. The UPC is 11110-02478.

Kroger has removed the nuts from its shelves and anyone who has purchased the nuts may return them for a refund and replacement.

The recalled cashews, from Hampton Farms, were sold in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. They come in 8-ounce tubs and have a best-by date of April 28, 2018, a UPC number of 8-10111-01035-1 and a lot number of 11817-L2.

An investigation at Hampton Farms found a contaminated piece of equipment, and while the cashews tested negative for listeria, they were pulled from shelves out of caution.
No illnesses have been reported from either recall.
