Pick 'n Pay recalls three peanut butter brands

Pick 'n Pay has recalled three Peanut butter brands.

In a statement, the retail store says, following in-house standard testing, these products were found to have higher than regulated levels of Aflatoxin, which is a certain fungi, and may lead to a health risk. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mycotoxin, but the levels we detected were higher than the regulatory threshold.

These peanut butter products are ‘No Name Smooth Peanut Butter’, ‘Eden Smooth Peanut Butter’ and ‘Eden Crunch Peanut Butter’.

‘’All stocks of these products have already been removed from all stores countrywide. No other peanut butter brand at Pick n Pay is involved in the recall. The health and safety of our customers is our priority,’’ said Pick ‘n pay, in a statement.

It urged customers who might have bought these peanut butter products to return them to the retail store for a full refund if any product has an expiry date between now and July 2025.

‘’If any customer has concerns, they are quite welcome to return these products whether or not they fall within this expiry date, or whether products have been opened or not,’’ it said.

‘’We have engaged the National Consumer Commission and the National Department of Health, Directorate Food Control,’’ added Pick ‘n Pay.

Pick ‘n Pay appealed its customers to check their pantries and food cupboards and return the products concerned to any Pick n Pay store for a full refund.
