Peanut butter recall expands

September 25, 2012 Updated Sep 25, 2012 at 1:36 PM CDT

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Trader Joe's has expanded a recall that originally included one variety of peanut butter to other types of nut butters.

The brands, produced by Sunland, Inc., are said to be possibly involved in an outbreak of salmonella that has infected 29 people in 18 states.

States reporting illness include Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Washington, California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“This expanded recall affects a far greater number of brands than earlier believed, and it’s important that consumers, school cafeterias, restaurants, hospitals and other food preparation sites check their cabinets for these recalled items,” Consumer Protection Commissioner William M. Rubenstein said in a statement. “Anyone who has any of the recalled nut butters should not eat them, but return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. The Department will work to oversee and ensure compliance with this recall.”
