Nearly every day adds new brand names to the list of products made with recalled peanut butter and other nut butters from Arizona’s Sunland Farms.
Now Sunland has issued another recall. This time it’s recalling all of its peanuts, whether roasted or raw, shelled and in shell. Recalls of products containing the nuts already have begun. More are likely.
The nuts weren’t part of the initial recalls because they were processed in a different Sunland plant than the one that processed the firm’s nut butters.
The FDA is keeping an updated list of the recalled products, including pictures of the products and the companies’ recall notices.
The CDC and FDA traced an ongoing salmonella outbreak to the Sunland products.
As of Oct. 5, the CDC had received 35 reports of illness from 19 states. There were eight reported hospitalizations but no deaths. Over 60% of the cases were in children under age 10 years.
