Recall includes nut butters at Costco, Trader Joe’s

October 9, 2012

By Staff

Costco, Target and Trader Joe’s recalled nut butters in recent days due to potential salmonella contamination in the products.

Between June 11 and Sept. 2, health officials reported 35 people sickened by salmonella to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The people sickened due to suspected contamination include a Spokane boy and a Thurston County boy.

The product manufacturer, Sunland Inc., initiated the voluntary recall after problems related to Trader Joe’s products.

Sunland Inc. suspended production and distribution as the company and the federal Food and Drug Administration continue to investigate.
