GIANT FOOD ALERTS CUSTOMERS TO EXPANDED RECALL OF I.M. HEALTHY SOYNUT BUTTER

Landover, Md. (March 8, 2017) - Following an expanded recall by The SoyNut Butter Co., Giant Food, LLC announced it has removed from sale certain I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter products that are potentially linked to an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7.

The following product is included in this recall:
