A Rhode Island company is recalling their products after operating without a business license.

Hank’s Protein Plus Peanut Butter stopped production on October 20th out of an abundance of caution.

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) has not received any reports of illnesses but say their products shouldn’t be eaten.  

A statement on the Hank’s Protein Plus Peanut Butter website says "while kitchen renovations are underway, we’ve been issued a hold order on our shelf inventory (some wall and ceiling surfaces are being upgraded)."

The statement continues saying " We apologize for this temporary business disruption but fully support policy to absolutely ensure product quality."
