Inspired Organics has issued a recall for almond, peanut and tahini butters due to possible Listeria contamination. The donated peanut butter is set aside for cross-verification with the recalled brand list before being repackaged for distribution at the Care and Share Food Bank in Colorado Springs, Colorado on February 24, 2009. Food banks have recently had to pull and destroy many bottles of peanut butter due to salmonella infections of some brands.
