Trader Joe's and MaraNatha brands of almond butter and peanut butter have been recalled over concerns they could be contaminated with salmonella.

The jars were sold nationwide, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency says in its recall notice.

The recall follows one in the U.S. that was triggered by Food and Drug Administration testing. No one in Canada has reported becoming sick from eating the almond or peanut butters, but four people have reported falling ill in the U.S.

Canadians who have the recalled products should throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with salmonella can be particularly dangerous for young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may experience fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
