Food Safety News Almonds

Hampton Farms has expanded its recall of Ava’s brand cashews and almonds, distributed for retail sale in New Jersey, because its nut supplier Hudson Valley Foods Inc. found Listeria monocytogenes in its processing plant in Highland, NY.

Hampton Farms used the nuts from Hudson Valley Farms in Ava’s branded organic roasted unsalted cashews and organic roasted unsalted almonds, according to a news release issued Monday by Hampton.

Samples of current ingredients at Hampton Farms tested negative for Listeria. The company has notified all affected distributors and retail customers, and the affected products are being pulled from store shelves. There had been no confirmed illnesses reported to public health authorities as of Monday.
