Whole Foods Market Recalls Raw Macadamia Nuts Due To Possible Health Risk

February 3, 2015


Distributed in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee



Whole Foods Market is recalling packaged raw macadamia nuts due to possible Salmonella contamination. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.








The product was labeled as “Whole Foods Market Raw Macadamia Nuts" and was packaged in 5.6 oz. plastic tubs. If you believe you have purchased these macadamia nuts, visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for package labels, dates, batch numbers, and UPC codes to identify the recalled products. The recalled product was distributed to Whole Foods Market, Greenlife Grocery, and Harry’s Farmer Market stores in the states listed above.
