Much like America’s collective waistline, this peanut product recall is expanding at an alarming rate.
As of this past Friday, October 12th, the FDA announced that, Sunland Inc. was now recalling raw and roasted shelled and in-shell peanuts sold in quantities from 2 ounces to 50 pounds which are within their current shelf life or have no stated expiration date.
The raw and roasted peanuts available to retail customers are distributed primarily under the company’s own label and were distributed primarily to produce houses and nationally to numerous large supermarket, grocery and retail chains. The products also were available for purchase on the internet.
Peanut butter and other nut and seed spreads made by Sunland Inc. are distributed nationally under several brand names via supermarket chains and on the internet.
A list of all products being recalled by Sunland Inc. can be found in the company’s recall announcement.
