This recall extends only to the specified products and specified lot numbers identified.

It is important to emphasize that the affected products have been sampled and tested for an array of harmful microorganisms. No harmful organisms have been detected in the 60 samples tested. Moreover, no consumer illnesses have been reported to the Company or to its customers. The Company has, however, received complaints regarding product spoilage resulting, in all likelihood, from low pH and non-pathogenic microbial growth due to the processing deviation. The Company has thoroughly investigated the cause of the problem and actively taken steps to correct it.

Consumers may return product to the place of purchase and/or call California Natural Products at 1-800-946-1615 during normal business hours PST.
