SL: Recall of Thrive Market Nut Butters Due to Potential Health Risk

For Immediate Release

January 24, 2019



Thrive Market, Inc.
Marina Del Rey, CA



Thrive Market, Inc, is recalling all unexpired lots of the Thrive Market-branded nut butters listed below (“Product(s)”) due to the potential for contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. On January 21, 2019, one of our suppliers notified us that it was issuing a recall of all nut butters it has manufactured since January 2018 because of a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes in recent lots. Because the safety of our members is our absolute priority, we are expanding on our supplier’s recall and are voluntarily recalling all unexpired lots of all Thrive Market-branded nut butters manufactured by this supplier.

Although it is very unlikely that the Product(s) you have purchased was affected by any contamination, out of an abundance of caution,if any of the Products listed below are in your possession, we ask that you please promptly discard it so that it cannot be consumed by you or others. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in pregnant women, young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The Products were distributed nationwide via Thrive Market’s ecommerce subscription service to its members, as well as other online retailers.
