NM company linked to illness expands peanut recall

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A New Mexico food company that produced the peanut butter linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning has expanded an ongoing recall of its products to include raw and roasted peanuts.

The list is 10 pages long with more than 400 items, from moon pies to ice cream and both raw and roasted peanuts. To see the entire list from the CDC, click here.

The Food and Drug Administration said Saturday that Sunland Inc. added raw and roasted shelled and in-shell peanuts sold in quantities from 2 ounces to 50 pounds to its recall. FDA inspectors have found salmonella in raw peanuts from the Sunland processing plant.

Sunland manufactured the peanut butter sold by Trader Joe's and linked to 35 salmonella illnesses across 19 states. Sunland has recalled everything made in its contaminated plant since March 2010.

Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk.
