Thirty people in 19 different states throughout the country have reported instances of salmonella poisoning after eating peanut butter or almond butter that was produced by Sunland, Incorporation.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that a recall for these defective products is in place, and has grown to more than 70 products that can be purchased nationally. The peanut butter and the almond butter are produced by Sunland, Inc., but the bottled products are sold under several names at numerous locations.
Approximately two-thirds of the salmonella reports involve children under the age of 10. The symptoms associated with salmonella range from nausea to severe infections. Sunland, Inc. voluntarily recalled the products, and told consumers to throw them away immediately, or to return them for a full refund.
