Recalls   Mahina Mele Farms and Angry Orchard Cider are recalling

Mahina Mele Farms is recalling some of its products after FDA testing found Salmonella in macadamia nuts.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products. In the interest of public health and safety, we are recalling all products processed from this batch of macadamia nuts.

The company is recalling Izzie Macs! Macadamia Nuts with UPC 689076792677, 689076793575, 689076792776, and 689076792974. Bulk Macadamia nuts salted and unsalted; wholes and pieces are also recalled, as well as Baby Bruddah's Mac Nut Buttah UPC 753182242019 and Baby Bruddah's Chocolate Mac Nut Buttah UPC 735182242040.

These products were shipped May 26-29th, 2015 and are from LOT #016.

Angry Orchard Cider Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, is conducting a voluntary recall of select cases (24/12oz bottles), 12-packs and 6-packs of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider.

The precautionary action comes after the Company received inquiries from consumers that had experienced broken bottles or bottles overflowing when opened. After conducting follow-up quality testing, the Company determined that the affected cider is limited to two batches, produced on June 15 and June 29, 2015.

Angry Orchard is voluntarily recalling the cases due to concerns that cider from these production runs appears to be showing signs of re-fermentation in the bottle, which could result in increased carbonation levels, and in some instances, bottles may overflow when opened or burst under increased pressure.

While the impacted cider poses no health risk if consumed, the team at Angry Orchard took this measure to ensure that products available to consumers meet their high quality standards.
