Company Announces Recall of Specialty Butter Products

August 17, 2013

A company is recalling two types of specialty butter that are sold in Charlottesville stores.

The company Justin's has announced a voluntary recall of its 16-ounce jars of Maple Almond Butter and 16-ounce jars of its Chocolate Hazelnut Butter due to the presence of foreign metallic fragments in unpackaged nut butter.

The company says no metal has been found in any individual jars, but they're moving forward with the recall "out of an abundance of caution."

There have been no illnesses or customer complaints relating to the product.

Specific details on the product from Justin's are listed below.
