The Trader Joe's peanut butter is now linked to 35 salmonella illnesses in 19 states.

The FDA said Friday that Washington State health officials have also confirmed the presence of salmonella in a jar of the Trader Joe's peanut butter that was found in a victim's home.

Sunland Inc. has expanded its recall to include all products manufactured in the plant in the last two and a half years, since March 2010.

Whole Foods Market, Target, Safeway and many other national chains have used Sunland products in their own brands.

Almost two-thirds of those sickened are children younger than 10.
