According to an article on WSBTV.com, Atlanta stores have pulled products involved in the Sunland Inc. peanut butter recall off the shelves.
The New Mexico company recalled dozens of brands of peanut butter and almond butter after one of the company’s products sold at Trader Joes was tied to a salmonella outbreak. At least 30 cases of salmonella illness in 19 states were linked to Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter which is manufactured and packaged by Sunland. Four people have been hospitalized for illnesses tied to the tainted peanut butter products. Most of the salmonella illnesses linked to these products have been in children under 10 years old.
Per the article, a Channel 2 reporter confirmed that the products involved in the recall were taken off shelves at metro-Atlanta Target, Publix, Kroger, and Whole Foods stores. More than 100 products are affected by this recall.
Sunland is advising those who have purchased the recalled products to either dispose of them or return them to the store for a full refund.
