Peanut butter recall expands to other foodsPosted: Updated:
A peanut butter recall is expanding to other foods because they too could be contaminated with salmonella.
This all started last month after people got sick from peanut butter at Trader Joe's. Now, the recall list is eight pages long, and that's just the nut butters.
The FDA now lists about 24 food items made with peanut butter that have been recalled. It includes some Albertson's ice creams, Fairytale Brownies and Whole Foods cookies.
The problem: the peanut butter came from the Sunland Incorporated Plant in New Mexico and the facility tested positive for salmonella just last week. Now, the company is recalling every product it's made since March 2010.
At least 35 people have been sickened, including at least one in Arizona, but there could be many others who didn't get sick enough to go to the doctor.
"Generally, it's not a very serious illness, but it can cause some complications especially in young children or the elderly," said Joli Weiss with the Arizona Department of Health Services.
Don't eat anything on that recall list and make sure the foods in your home are safe. To view the recall list, click here: http://www.sunlandinc.com/788/html/pdfs/SunlandRecall.pdf.
