It was only 3 years ago I was posting about another peanut butter recall, which involved the Peanut Corporation of America. This time, the company is Sunland and is located in Portales, New Mexico.
The initial culprit was “Trader Joe’s Creamy Valencia Peanut Butter,” and now unfortunately, the recall had been expanded to include several products made by Sunland that are sold under different brand names across the country.
A comprehensive list of recalled peanut butters can be found on this FDA website. As is common with these types of recalls, they expand exponentially as it becomes clear that the plant also provides peanut butter products to other companies in the forms of cookies, etc. The new recalled brands are Gretchen’s Shoebox, Whole Foods Market and Fresh & Easy.
In this particular recall, people have fell ill with Salmonella, and to me that means I should pay attention. I don’t usually get wrapped up in the recalls, but, peanut butter is a staple in my house, and with young children you do have to be vigilant about this type of stuff.
Nutella is looking like a pretty good option right around now…
