Sept. 26, 2012—Sunland expanded its recall of almond butter and peanut butter to include cashew butter, tahini and roasted blanched peanut products that were manufactured from May 1, 2012, through Sept. 24, 2012. The products might be contaminated with salmonella. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and individuals who have weakened immune systems.
This recall applies to products that have “best by” dates between May 1, 2013, and Sept. 24, 2013. The best-by date is stamped on the side of the jar’s label below the lid, and the UPC is located on the label below the bar code. Consumers can find a list of the recalled products’ UPCs at sunlandinc.com. The original recall was announced Sept. 25, 2012.
The products were distributed nationally to large chain supermarkets. Food and Drug Administration is investigating 29 reports of salmonella-related illnesses in 18 states, but the reports might not be related to Sunland products.
For more information, consumers may call Sunland at 866/837-1018.
