NEW YORK - Peanut and almond butters sold at Kroger supermarkets are being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination. Dillons stores in Kansas are a branch of Kroger.

A unit of Hain Celestial Group Inc. says there have been reports of four illnesses that may be related to the nut butters. They were sold under the brand names Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butters, MaraNatha Almond Butters and Peanut Butters, and private label brands for Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Kroger and Safeway.

They were sold in Canada, the Dominican Republic, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates as well as the U.S.

The company says it learned of the contamination risk after routine FDA testing.

The Food and Drug Administration says it does not know how many jars of nut butters were recalled. The company would not comment.
