On May 3, Hormel Foods Sales, LLC voluntarily recalled two PLANTERS products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall on its website.

The recalled products were produced at one of the company’s facilities in April and distributed to Publix warehouses in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina and Dollar Tree warehouses in South Carolina and Georgia. Hormel has notified all retailers and the recalled products are no longer available for sale to customers.
