NIWOT, Colo. — Earth Balance, a company based in Niwot, is issuing a voluntary recall of certain jars of its almond butter that might possibly pose a health risk to consumers.

This recall is due to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has linked a salmonella outbreak to a producer that makes Earth Balance’s almond butter.

Sunland Inc. is that manufacturer. And the company announced Tuesday that large batches of its almond butter and peanut butter — which the company has expanded to include cashew butter, tahini and roasted blanched peanut products — are being recalled.

The recall is limited to products manufactured between May 1, 2012 and Sept. 24, 2012, and comes after Sunland’s Salted Valencia Peanut Butter was founded to be linked to 29 cases of salmonella in 18 states by the CDC.

As for the Earth Balance Almond Butter, in particular, the company said the recall is limited to jars of the product with “best by” dates between May 2012 and Sept. 2013.
