On Saturday, September 22nd the Peanut Butter bombshell dropped on Trader Joe’s. The Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter had a whole list of Trader Joe’s stores recalled because of a salmonella risk.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states to Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter
The Sunland Inc., a New Mexico-based company has recalled 76 types of peanut butter and almond butter from the Trader Joe’s shelves. The company has now also decided to recall peanut butter distributed to other super market chains because the butter was made with the same equipment as the Trader Joes product Sunland spokeswoman Katalin Coburn said.
If you have purchased this peanut butter then you are being told to return it to the store you bought it from for a total refund.
