Looking for a Safe Peanut Butter? Try Justin’s Nut Butter

By |

Ever since the news broke that peanut butter from the Peanut Corp. of America was contaminated with salmonella, the childhood favorite has been pulled from shelves, banned from pantries, and largely vilified.

But the recall has meant a boost in business for Justin’s Nut Butter. Word is that the Boulder company–which makes its own peanut and almond butters on-site in Louisville, with only natural ingredients–has been flooded with orders (sales have increased between 10 to 15 percent every week since the outbreak) and investment money ($800,000 in the last couple of weeks).

“We continue to see record-breaking sales for our company and an incredible amount of support from retailers and consumers across the country,” says Justin Gold, founder of the company.

Since I first discovered Justin’s a couple years ago, the butters have become staples in my kitchen. Perhaps they should be in yours as well.
