Clover recalls Go Nuts Peanut Butter due to toxin levels

| Supplier news

The National Consumer Commission (NCC) is reportedly investigating Clover’s alleged contraventions of the Consumer Protection Act following the recall of 10,776 units of GoNuts Peanut Butter as tests revealed higher than acceptable levels of aflatoxin. Clover has become the sixth brand to be recalled in South Africa.

The recall by Clover comes after peanut butter product recalls including Pick n Pay’s 1kg No Name, Dischem’s Lifestyle Brand 400g, 800g of their smooth and crunchy, Wazoogles in various sizes, Eat Naked in various sizes, and Woolworths’s Peanut Butter Dairy Ice Cream, last month as the products failed to meet acceptable levels of aflatoxin.

According to the NCC, the product was distributed to about 993 retailers. Consumers who are in possession of the Clover Go Nuts 400g peanut butter with the best-before date 12, 18 and 19, July 2025, have been urged to stop consuming the product and return it to the point of purchase for a full refund.

The NCC has also called on all producers, manufacturers, and suppliers of peanut butter, peanut butter-based products or products containing peanuts to immediately test their products for aflatoxin levels and submit their results.

Consumers in possession of Clover Go Nuts 400g peanut butter with best-before dates of June 12, 18 and 2025 and July 19 2025 are urged to stop consuming the product and return it to the point of purchase for full refunds.
