United Natural Trading LLC is recalling several walnut and walnut-containing products sold under the Nature’s Promise, Woodstock, Market Basket and Woodfield Farms brands due to a possible listeria contamination.

The recalled items, which were purchased from Gibson Farms, were distributed in limited quantities to retailers and distributors throughout the United States. Only specific lot numbers and sell dates are included in this recall; click here for a full list. 

The recall was issued as a precaution after a single sample was tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported, according to the recall announcement. 

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious infections in children and those that are frail or elderly, or those with weakened immune symptoms. It can also cause miscarriages or stillbirths in pregnant women. Affected individuals may experience fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. 

The Company is working with regulatory officials and has contacted its customers to ensure that any remaining recalled products are removed, the announcement said. 

Consumers who purchased the product should dispose of it, but retain their receipts, packaging or other proof of purchase. They may contact Melissa McCullough at Woodstock Farms Manufacturing customer service at 732-650-9905 with questions.
