Announcement

San Francisco, CA. - Out of an abundance of caution, Hampton Creek is undertaking a voluntary recall of 6 SKU’s of baking mixes that contain the Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder . The ingredient, which makes up less than 1.31% of the mixes, tested positive for Salmonella in a company-initiated testing program. Hampton Creek immediately notified Native Forest and their distributor, and has requested they initiate a voluntary recall of all their Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder -in all formats-with all retail and food manufacturing customers.

The affected mixes, available nation-wide, are as follows:

Per the FDA’s website, “ Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.”

As part of Hampton Creek’s testing program, 30 Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder samples were pulled and tested. 29 of the samples tested negative and one sample tested positive for Salmonella . 74 additional samples taken from other lots of the Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder tested negative.

No other Hampton Creek products were affected, and there have been no reports of any health issues.

All finished mixes released into the market tested negative for any pathogens, but with the presence of Salmonella in the Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder , we notified the FDA of the potential health risk. Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled products should not consume the product, and either discard it or return it to the retailer for a full refund.

“Nothing else matters without safety,” said Hampton Creek’s Founder and CEO, Josh Tetrick. “The guidance we’ve received from the FDA has been vital to ensuring any affected product is removed from the marketplace. You can reach me directly any time at 415.404.2372 or the company at 844.423.6637, M-F 9:00-6pm PST, and wecare@hamptoncreek.com with any and all questions or concerns.”

With the health and safety of consumers being the company’s top priority, Hampton Creek decided to inform the FDA of the Native Forest Coconut Milk Powder concern 2 days before the confirmed test result.
