A product recall that began with Trader Joe’s products has expanded to 76 peanut butter products across the nation due to salmonella contamination. In total, 29 salmonella illnesses have been reported across 18 states in relation to contaminated Trader Joe’s products, according to CBS News.
All recalled products have been manufactured by Sunland Inc., and while no other cases related to the non-Trader Joe’s products have been reported, they have been recalled due to being manufactured with the same equipment. Originally, Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter manufactured from May 1 through September 24 was the focus of the recall; however, the company’s Valencia Peanut Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds and Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds have also been recalled.
Salmonella can commonly be recovered from without medical aid, but children, elderly, and all others with weak immune systems can easily suffer from severe cases of poisoning. Common symptoms of salmonella poisoning include fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.
In total, the 76 products have been recalled from the following brands: Fresh & Easy, Archer Farms, Joseph’s, Sprout’s, Sprouts Farmers Market, Heinen’s, Earth Balance, Natural Value, Open Nature, Naturally More, Serious Food, Peanut Power Butter, Snaclite Power, Sunland, and Dogsbutter.
