LAKE MILLS, Wisc. (FOX 5 NY) - Oskri Organics Corp., a Lake Mills, Wisconsin, company, is recalling lots of its Oskri Organic Sunflower Butter, Oskri Tahini Butter, and Thrive Sunflower Butter because of the possibility of listeria contamination, according to the FDA.

Some jars were sold online directly to consumers and others were sold at retail. The company said recalled products reached consumers in California, Arizona, Georgia, Connecticut, Indiana, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Idaho, South Carolina, and New Hampshire.
In December, a customer decided to randomly test an Oskri product, which came back positive for listeria, the company said.
"An investigation is still ongoing to find the source of the Listeria monocytogenes," Oskri said. "We have ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and Oskri continue their investigation as to what caused the problem."
