Evidence Links Illnesses to I.M. Healthy Brand SoyNut Butter

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local authorities have been investigating a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 infections. A total of 12 illnesses have been reported from Arizona, California, Maryland, New Jersey and Oregon.


On March 3, 2017, The SoyNut Butter Company voluntarily recalled I.M. Healthy Original Creamy SoyNut Butter with the Best By dates of August 30, 2018, and August 31, 2018.

According to the CDC, as of March 2, 2017, a total of 12 people infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 were reported from five states. The number of ill people identified in each state is as follows: Arizona, (4), California (4), Maryland (1), New Jersey (1), and Oregon (2). Six ill people have been hospitalized, and four people developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a potentially life-threatening type of kidney failure. Eleven of the 12 illnesses were reported in children under the age of 18. No deaths have been reported.


Known illnesses started on dates ranging from January 6, 2017 to February 15, 2017. The epidemiologic evidence available to investigators at this time indicates that I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter is a likely source of the outbreak. In interviews conducted by state and local health department officials, ill people or their family members answered questions about the foods they ate and other exposures in the week before they became ill. All of the nine people reached for interviews reported either eating I.M. Healthy brand SoyNut Butter at home (five people) in the week before they became ill or attending a childcare center that served I.M. Healthy brand SoyNut Butter or I.M. Healthy brand granola coated with SoyNut Butter (four people).


On March 2, 2017, the FDA and CDC held a call with the owners of the SoyNut Butter Company to advise the firm about the multistate outbreak linked to their SoyNut Butter products. The FDA’s investigation of the firm and production methods continues, and the agency will share more information as it becomes available.

CDC recommends that consumers not eat, and childcare centers and other institutions not serve, any variety or size of I.M. Healthy brand SoyNut Butter or I.M. Healthy brand granola coated with SoyNut Butter produced by SoyNut Butter Company. The CDC also urges consumers to check their pantry for SoyNut Butter products.

What are the Symptoms of E. coli O157:H7 Infection?

The symptoms of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) infections vary for each person but often include severe stomach cramps and bloody diarrhea. If there is fever, it is usually not very high (less than 101 degrees Fahrenheit /less than 38.5 degrees Celsius). Most people get better within 5–7 days. Some infections are very mild, but others are severe or even life-threatening.

Around 5–10 percent of those who are diagnosed with STEC infection develop a potentially life-threatening complication, known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

Symptoms of HUS include fever, abdominal pain, feeling very tired, decreased frequency of urination, small unexplained bruises or bleeding, and pallor. Most people with HUS recover within a few weeks, but some suffer permanent damage or die. People who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately. Persons with HUS should be hospitalized because their kidneys may stop working (acute renal failure), but they may also develop other serious problems such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and neurologic problems.

Who is at Risk?

People of any age can become infected. Children under the age of 10 and the elderly are more likely than others to develop severe illness to include HUS, but even healthy older children and young adults can become seriously ill. In this particular outbreak, the age range of ill patients is between 2 years to 48 years, with a median age of 8 years.


What Do Consumers Need To Do?

Due to the epidemiological evidence, the CDC recommends that consumers not eat any variety or size of the I.M. Healthy brand SoyNut Butter or granola coated with SoyNut Butter produced by The SoyNut Butter Company.

Contact your health care provider if you think you or your child became ill after eating I.M. Healthy brand SoyNutButter or granola coated with SoyNut Butter, especially if you or your child develop diarrhea that lasts for more than three days, or is accompanied by high fever, blood in the stool, or so much vomiting that you cannot keep liquids down and you pass very little urine.

What Do Retailers Need To Do?

The SoyNut Butter Company has initiated a voluntary recall of select products at this time. For questions or concerns, please call the company at 800-288-1012.

Who should be Contacted?

The FDA encourages consumers with questions about food safety to call 1-888-SAFEFOOD Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern time or to consult the FDA website.
