Sunland Peanut Butter and Other Nut Butter Products Being Recalled All Over the U.S.
Stores all across the country are pulling peanut butter and certain nut butters off store shelves due to a recent recall by Sunland, Inc.
According to a press release from Sunland, Inc.
Sunland, Inc. today announced a voluntary recall of its Almond Butter and Peanut Butter, which it has now expanded to include its Cashew Butter, Tahini and Roasted Blanched Peanut Products. This recall is limited to products manufactured between May 1, 2012 and September 24, 2012. These products may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Look for the prices of peanut butter and nut butters to increase again.
