Peanut Butter Recall Expands

WASHINGTON (September 24, 2012)--New Mexico-based Sunland, Inc., is recalling 76 types of peanut butter and almond butter after one of its products was linked to a salmonella outbreak at Trader Joe's groceries.

Recall Information

Sunland recalled the products under multiple brand names after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states to Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter.

Sunland manufactures and packages the Trader Joe's product.

A Sunland spokeswoman said the company recalled the other peanut and almond butters because they were manufactured with the same equipment as the Trader Joe's product.

None of the other products has been linked to illnesses.

Trader Joe's recalled the Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter from its stores Saturday.
