Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Update: NOW has expanded its recall to include Roasted Almond Butter (Product Code E0545, Lot# 2124119, best-by date 2/18) and Mango Chili Cashew Butter (Product Code E0542, Lot# 2125156, best-by date 3/19).
