No illnesses have been reported in connection with this product and no other Plum Organics products are affected. As a further precaution, samples from every Plum Organics product manufactured before and after this batch were tested and found to be within quality standards. The recall was undertaken as a precaution due to the risk of potential contamination with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism, a serious and sometimes life threatening condition. Consumers should not use these products, even if they appear to be normal, because of the possible health risk.

Local Health Jurisdictions in Washington State are not being asked to participate in any formal recall verification activities at this time, but appropriate staff should be aware of the recall.
