Heinz indicated that it is conducting an internal review of the matter and insists that its products conform to proper safety standards.

Some ketchup from the affected batch had previously been shipped to Brazil. However, the company says that ketchup has been withdrawn from distribution.

Earlier this year, Heinz was acquired by a joint venture between Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) and 3G Capital, a Brazilian investment firm, in a deal worth $23 billion.
