We have been informed that a lot of organic desiccated coconut used in these items tested positive for salmonella. While the three O’Coconut items being recalled have not tested positive for salmonella, as a precautionary measure we are voluntarily recalling all products that contain the raw material from the lot that tested positive.
Nutiva urges you to dispose of any O’Coconut product with the affected expiration dates that you purchased between Feb 15 and March 19. The company says you should not eat them even if you already have and feel ok.
The store where you bought the product will give you a refund if you return the package to the store, and if you ordered it via Nutiva's website, they will issue you a gift certificate to Nutiva.com, the press release says.
