The Shoprite Group can confirm that the private label peanut butter sold in its supermarkets is safe to consume.  

As a precaution, the aflatoxin levels in the Group's peanut butters were again tested last week. The quality and safety of our products are a top priority and undergo regular testing and quality checks.  

The Group’s private label peanut butter – sold under its Ritebrand, Housebrand, Pot O’ Gold, Ubrand, Simple Truth and OK brand names – are not affected by the recent recall as it is produced in a different factory.
