Peanut Butter Salmonella Outbreak Expands to Additional Products

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 26-Sep-2012

A peanut butter recall that was initially limited to Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, which may have been tainted by Salmonella, has now expanded to include 76 other types of nut butter.

The nut products, manufactured by Sunland Inc., were recalled after investigations led by the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention associated a Salmonella outbreak to the Trader Joe’s peanut butter, which is manufactured and packaged by Sunland.

In addition, Sunland Inc. also manufactures butters sold in other establishments under a diverse range of brand names and labels. According to Sunland, the additional recalls were established because the products were processed on the same equipment as the Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter.

People who endured sickness as a result of Salmonella tainted peanut butter reported illness during the period between June 11, 2012 and September 2, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. The FDA and CDC have not linked or received any reports of death linked to the peanut butter salmonella outbreak.

As a result of the peanut butter salmonella outbreak, the processing plant, located in New Mexico, is under inspection by the Food and Drug Administration.
