Justin's voluntarily recalls nut butters
Last Updated: 15:37 August 19, 2013
While no metal was found in any jars, Boulder-based Justin's is voluntarily recalling 16-ounce containers of its Maple Almond Butter and its Chocolate Hazelnut Butter products, the company said in a press statement. No details were given on how metallic fragments were found in the unpackaged nut butter or how much was found.
No consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries have been reported, the company said. Company spokeswoman Lauren Lortie said Justin's does "not have any understanding on cost implications at this time" in a written response to a request for comment.
The nut butter flavors recalled were distributed nationally to retailers and were available for purchase on the Internet from July 18 to Aug. 14, the company said. Customers should visit www.justins.com for details of the specific batches of nut butters being recalled.
Justin Gold founded Justin's in 2004 by selling homemade nut butters at the Boulder Farmers Market that he made in his home food processor. Justin's has grown rapidly since then, posting revenue of $5.3 million in 2010 and $20 million in 2012.
