NuGo Safe to EAT
Expanded recall does NOT affect NuGo
As the peanut butter recall expands, NuGo is issuing a re-confirmation that ALL NUGO MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS ARE STILL SAFE TO EAT. We do NOT purchase anything from the Peanut Corporation of America or their affiliated brands. Our standard operating procedure is to test every production batch for any microbiologic presence including that of salmonella bacteria. We are shocked some major food companies have ceased these testing procedures which we consider mandatory. As an independent company, we always stand behind our quality and we are proud to meet or exceed FDA, USDA, Kosher, and/or Gluten Free guidelines.
Company president David Levine ensures people that, “As an independent food company, we invest our time and money into testing every lot of product to ensure its high quality and safety. NuGo is safe to eat.” Levine continues by telling consumers to check manufacturer’s websites or call their toll free numbers: “There are great food companies like NuGo who have never purchased from PCA and who remain unaffected by this recall. This is an unconscionable act of negligence by one company (PCA) and is not in any way representative of NuGo’s safety and health practices.”
