Marin Food Specialties, Inc. of Byron, CA, is voluntarily recalling Organic Raw Almonds (bitter almonds) sold at Whole Foods Markets due to potentially elevated levels of the natural chemical hydrogen cyanide, according to laboratory test results. The almonds were labeled as “Whole Foods Market Organic Raw Almonds Imported from Italy” and “Whole Foods Organic raw Almonds Imported from Spain” and packaged in 13.5 oz. plastic tubes. Recalled almonds have sell-by dates from 4/8/15 to 6/7/15 with a UPC code of 9-99482-00071-7. The recalled almonds were sold in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Reno, Nevada and Idaho. A complete list of Whole Foods stores where the product was sold can be found in the recall notification. Eating foods that contain high amounts of hydrogen cyanide (also known as prussic acid) may result in some of the following symptoms within minutes: dizziness, headache, nausea and vomiting, rapid breathing, rapid heart rate, restlessness and weakness. Exposure to even higher quantities of hydrogen cyanide may cause even more serious health effects, including convulsions, loss of consciousness, low blood pressure, lung injury, slow heart rate, and respiratory failure leading to death. No illnesses have been reported in association with this product. However, due to the time involved in tracing an illness back to a food source, it is impossible to say whether or not any illnesses have occurred. All recalled almonds have reportedly been pulled from Whole Foods stores.
