The SoyNut Butter Co. of Glenview, IL is expanding its recall of I.M. Healthy Brand SoyNut Butter and granola products. The recall now includes Dixie Diner’s Club brand Carb Not Beanit Butter because they may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria (E. Coli O157:H7). E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. The recalled Dixie U.S.A. product was only available for purchase via mail order or online portals.

All Best Buy dates are affected. Best Buy dates can be seen on the labels of the containers stamped in black.

Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney failure and even death.

Consumers who have purchased Dixie Diner’s Club products are urged not to consume the product. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-233-3668, Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00 CST.
