Peanut recall linked to salmonella expands
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- The food company that produced the peanut butter linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning has expanded its recall.
The original recall was for Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter sold in Trader Joe's stores. The recall now includes raw and roasted shelled and in-shell peanuts sold in quantities from 2 ounces to 50 pounds.
The products come from the New Mexico-based Sunland company. Sunland manufactured the peanut butter sold by Trader Joe's that's been linked to 35 salmonella illnesses across 19 states.
California schools have been asked to destroy all peanut butter that is being recalled. Los Angeles Unified no longer serves peanut butter at all, largely to avoid student allergies.
Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk.
