Another major brand pulls its peanut butter off shelves in wide-scale recall

VAAL TRIANGLE - Clover is the latest food producer to pull its peanut butter products from shelves over the presence of a dangerous mytotoxin. News24 reports the National Consumer Commission (NCC) said Clover recalled 10 776 units of its 400g Go Nuts peanut butter after tests revealed higher than acceptable levels of aflatoxin, which is linked to serious health complications. Clover was being investigated by the NCC over the matter. This follows recalls last month of Pick 'n Pay’s 1kg No Name, Dischem's Lifestyle Brand 400g and 800g - smooth and crunchy, Wazoogles (various sizes), Eat Naked (various sizes), and Woolworths' Peanut Butter Dairy Ice Cream. The NCC said previously that the affected brands are manufactured by the same producer – House of Natural Butters. It said on Friday the risk of consuming products with higher than acceptable levels of Aflatoxin may lead to health complications like nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. South African consumers who have the recalled products must immediately stop consuming these products and return the products to a point of purchase for a full refund, with or without proof of purchase."
