Check your nuts: These are the products that were recalled by Pioneer Foods

Check your pantry – Pioneer Foods recalled certain batches of peanuts, cashew nuts and even raisins after routine testing unveiled “low levels of salmonella”. A limited number of cases of Safari 60g peanuts & raisins (best before: 27/10/2022) and Safari 100g raw cashews (best before: 27/6/2022) were released to the public despite being isolated and ring-fenced for destruction.

A recall was done, production was immediately halted and the production site deep cleaned.

Chief executive officer Tertius Carstens of Pioneer Foods says that there have been no complaints by customers to date but they decided that the safest thing to do is recall the products to avoid health-related complaints.

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Most people who get ill from Salmonella have diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Symptoms usually begin 6 hours to 6 days after infection and last 4 to 7 days.

The recall affects products in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

According to reports, Pioneer Foods retrieved 92% of the affected products by Monday 6 December 2021.

Customers who have purchased the products in question are urged to return them to retailers from which they were purchased to receive a full refund.
