An initial peanut butter recall made surrounding Trader Joe’s stores has expanded to more than 70 products nationwide. The peanut butter in question is tainted with salmonella and is produced by Sunland, Incorporation.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this peanut butter recall now affects different types of nut-based butters, including almond. Although these products are produced by Sunland, Inc., they are sold by numerous grocery stores throughout the country under different names. Grocery stores that are currently selling these defective products include Whole Foods, WalMart, and Target.
As of now, there have been 19 reported salmonella cases pertaining to the peanut butter. The family of a 4-year-old who became ill from the tainted peanut butter has already filed a lawsuit. Most of the reported salmonella illnesses are concentrated in children under the age of 10.
