Cashew Butter, Snacks Added to Recall of Peanut Spreads

Spreads and some products made with cashew butter, tahini and roasted, blanched peanuts join the lineup of possibly tainted foods sold at Target, Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Fresh & Easy and other stores.

Sunland Inc. announced Wednesday another voluntary recall of its Almond Butter and Peanut Butter, which it has now expanded to include its Cashew Butter, Tahini and Roasted Blanched Peanut Products. These products are sold at such stores as Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Target and Fresh & Easy.

This recall is limited to products manufactured between May 1 and Sept. 24. These products may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The voluntary recall was initiated after 29 people reported Salmonella Bredeney PFGE matching illnesses in approximately 18 states, including Washington, California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, North Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut, New Jersey and Maryland, according to a report issued Sept. 22 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our customers, particularly the many families who enjoy our peanut butter everyday. While FDA, CDC, and state Health Agencies investigate to confirm the cause of illnesses reported, as a precautionary step, we have decided to voluntarily recall our Almond Peanut and Cashew Butters, Tahini and Roasted Blanched Peanut products manufactured between May 1 and Sept. 24, 2012. If you purchased these products, do not eat them. Please return the product to your supermarket for a full refund or dispose of it," said Jimmie Shearer, president and CEO of Sunland Inc.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). No other Sunland products are affected by this recall.

The products were distributed nationally to numerous large supermarket chains and were available for purchase on the Internet.
