A multi-state peanut butter recall has been issued by the FDA. The brand of Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter was first named, but now it doesn’t end there. Many other Sunland Inc. products are included in the recall. A large list of products included in this recall, compiled by the FDA can be found at FDA.org.
Thirty (30) people in 19 states, two-thirds being under the age of 10, have been sickened by a strain of Salmonella called Bredeney. Children under 5, elderly, and compromised immune systems should NOT eat the products found on the list. If you have a product dated between May 1 and September 24, 2012, you should either dispose of it immediately or return it to the store where it was purchased.
