Peanut Butter Recall | October 2012

Sunland Inc., a company out of New Mexico that sells nuts
and nut butters to large grocery stores and other food
distributors around the country, has recently recalled
products
under multiple brand names after salmonella
illnesses were
linked to Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted
Valencia Peanut Butter,
one of the brands
manufactured by Sunland
.


The federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention said
there are now 30 illnesses in 19 states that can be traced to
the Trader Joe’s peanut butter. No other foods have been
linked to the illnesses, but Sunland recalled other products
manufactured on the same equipment as the Trader Joe’s
product.

in items they prepared and packaged themselves.

Naturally More, Open Nature, Peanut Power Butter, Serious
