Salmonella Recall Expands Quickly
A large number of products are being recalled after a 19-state outbreak of salmonella Bredeney. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports 30 people have been infected with the outbreak strain.
The outbreak was first linked to Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter, SKU# 97111, but has spread to a long list of products that can be found on the US Food and Drug Administration's website.
Sunland Inc., which manufactured the Trader Joe's peanut butter, has also voluntarily recalled almond butter, peanut butter, and other products manufactured on the same product line between May 1 and September 24, 2012. Read the company's recall statement here.
On Oct. 3, at least 15 companies including Whole Foods Market, Newman's Own Organics, Harry and David, and Stop & Shop Supermarket Company announced related recalls.
