Some of the most popular nuts in the world are now being recalled for a potentially deadly reason. Macadamia nut products may have been contaminated with E. coli.
"Certain macadamia nut products produced by the company Mauna Loa have been voluntarily recalled due to potential E. coli contamination, the Hawaii Department of Health announced on Monday," reported Fox.
The nuts are a very popular item in Hawaii and a lot of tourists purchase them. The recall is said to be limited to the Hawaiian company's facility.
"The recall includes food items produced at the company’s facility on Macadamia Road in Kea’au, Hawaii, between September 6 and 21. It was in response to E. coli detected in the well water and distribution system that supplies the facility, according to the health department, reported Fox.
Numerous flavors are involved, including honey roasted, onion garlic, and dark chocolate, for example, and shortbread cookies, and others. Customers are being urged to discard the products or return them to where they purchased them from for a refund.
“There is clear evidence that food produced at the Kea’au facility may be contaminated and consumers may be at risk,” Peter Oshiro, chief of the department’s sanitation branch, said in the department’s announcement. “The Department of Health is working with the facility to ensure the safety of their drinking water and food production.”
The Hawaiian facility will remain closed while an investigation into the deadly contamination takes place. Please see a medical professional if you feel you may have eaten some of the contaminated products.
