A unit of Hain Celestial Group Inc. is recalling some peanut and almond butter because of possible salmonella contamination.The company said Tuesday that there have been reports of four illnesses that may be related to the nut butters. They were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills peanut butters and MaraNatha almond butters and peanut butters.

Also being recalled were some lots of private label almond butter from grocers Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Kroger and Safeway. In California, Kroger owns Ralphs stores, and Safeway owns the Vons chain. A total of 45 production lots are affected.

A nationwide recall of almond butter could affect Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe’s shoppers in the Charlotte market.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administrationannounced Tuesday that nSpired Natural Foods Inc. is conducting a voluntarily nationwide recall of peanut butter and almond butter because those products could be contaminated with salmonella.

That includes certain lots of Arrowhead Mills peanut butter, MaraNath almond butter and private-label peanut and nut butters, including some Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s brands. Trader’s Joe’s raw almond butter and several sold under the Whole Foods brand have been recalled.

To date, four reports of illnesses have been reported.

More than 40 products packaged in glass and plastic jars are included in the recall.

The company is working with customers and retailers to remove and destroy the products, which were distributed across the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and the Dominican Republic. The products also were available for purchase online.

Affected products are listed on the FDA’s website or customers can contact the company at (800) 937-7008 with inquiries or for a replacement or refund.

Typical symptoms of salmonella infection are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. These symptoms generally develop within one to three days of exposure to the bacterium and may last for up to a week. While anyone can become ill from exposure to salmonella, health officials say the risk of infection is particularly high for children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
