Last weekend a peanut butter recall took place at Trader Joe's. It was then expanded till Monday. In total, 76 peanut butter and almond butter products made by Sunland Inc.'s Portales, N. M. plant were included in this recall.
Since June 11 and September 2, in all 29 people were infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Bredeney from 18 states. California was one of them. It was this outbreak following which this intentional recall was initiated.
According to a new release from the FDA, this outbreak seems to have deep links with the peanut and almond butter.
As said by Sunland President and CEO Jimmie Shearer in a news release, "There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our customers".
Therefore just as a precautionary measure the company has recalled all its Almond Butter and Peanut Butter products that were manufactured between May 1, 2012 and Sept. 24, 2012.
All the customers who so ever purchased these products are requested to return them. They can either exchange their purchase else get a full refund of it.
House brands from Trader Joe's, Sprouts Farmers Market and Fresh & Easy grocery stores are also included in the lot of recalled products.
