ARDEN HILLS, Minn. (AP) -- Land O' Lakes Inc. issued a voluntary recall for its one-pound packages of salted stick butter on Sunday because they may contain small fragments of metal.
The company said it is working with the FDA to remove the butter from stores and homes, but there have been no reports of illness related to the recall.
The butter was distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Production codes on the packaging of the affected butter include the date and KE107P, KE108P, or KE109P. The company said anyone who bought butter with those production codes could return it to the store for a refund.
The butter was produced at a Land O' Lakes facility in Kent, Ohio.
