This is URGENT !!!
No scare tactics here. I have been using one of the affected 16 oz bottles myself.
This broadcast should go out as an email to all the Mothers of small children first. The greatest potential for Harm is for children.
Please pass it along to everyone on your List who may be using Nut Butters. I have recommended Maranatha Nut Butters for over 10 years and to my knowledge this is the first time for a serious problem of this nature.
I will continue to use the Maranatha Brand and so should you.
Mistakes happen, that is part of life. Tonight I will buy a replacement Jar of my favorite Marantha Nut Butter.
- Return any and all UNOPENED bottles of 16 ounce Sesame Tahini to where you bought it and get a refund.
- The Date code on the Jars is on the Metal Lid right in the center on the Outside.
The recall is for ALL 16 ounce jars with a Use By Date of 04/11/08 and earlier.
Example: If the lid has a date of 03/05/08 (the date on my jar ) it is part of the Recall. If the date is 06/08/08 it is OK.
