Back to your pantry to do another check: Last week's peanut butter recall has been expanded. Sunland, Inc., the manufacturer whose contaminated peanut products led to 30 cases of salmonella posioning in 19 states, has just voluntarily added every product made in their peanut plant during a specific window of time to the recall. The precaution is being taken because these products may also have come into contact with the salmonella virus.
The list is long— 139 additional peanut-based products have been added, including peanut butters from Arrowhead, Kirkland (Costco), and Trader Joe's. The complete list is available here. (Scroll down for both the new items and the products from last week's recall).
