Which Peanut Butter Brands Are Being Recalled? Here’s The Latest List

The recalled products sold under multiple brand names have been linked to salmonella illnesses. Almost two-thirds of those who became ill were children under the age of 10.

The recall list of peanut butter brands and other nut products continues to grow.

New Mexico-based Sunland Inc. expanded its recall of peanut butter and almond butter to include cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products, The Associated Press reported this week. The company sells its products to grocers and food distributors around the country.

The recalled products sold under multiple brand names have been linked to salmonella illnesses; Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter was one of the first products cited.

Products sold at Whole Foods Market, Target, Safeway, Fresh & Easy, Harry and David, Sprouts, Heinen's, Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, Giant Food of Landover, Md., and several other stores are being pulled from shelves. Some of those retailers used Sunland ingredients in items they prepared and packaged themselves, The Associated Press reports.

As of Oct. 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report there have been 30 salmonella illnesses in 19 states that can be traced to the Trader Joe's peanut butter. No other foods have been linked to the illnesses, but Sunland recalled other products manufactured on the same equipment as the Trader Joe's product, The Associated Press reported.

Brand names included in the recall are Target's Archer Farms, Safeway's Open Nature, Earth Balance, Fresh & Easy, Late July, Heinen's, Joseph's, Natural Value, Naturally More, Peanut Power Butter, Serious Food, Snaclite Power, Sprouts Farmers Market, Sprouts, Sunland and Dogsbutter.

Sunland's recall includes 101 products, and several retailers have issued additional recalls including items made with Sunland ingredients, according to The Associated Press.

“Those sickened reported becoming ill between June 11 and Sept. 11, according to the CDC. Almost two-thirds of those who became ill were children under the age of 10. No deaths have been reported,” The Associated Press reports.
