In the News: Peanut Butter Recall

You’ve likely heard in the news about the recent peanut butter recall involving peanut products from a New Mexico-based company, Sunland. The CDC has reported at least 30 cases of salmonella that have been linked primarily to Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter. Fortunately for those of us in the Triad, Trader Joe’s at Thruway hasn’t opened yet (word on the street is that it opens next week!), so hopefully there isn’t too much of this peanut butter around. That being said, the recall has recently expanded to include Whole Foods and Target (Archer Farms), Kirkland, and Hines whole peanut products (sold at Walmart), so check your pantry for any peanut items that you mind find from these sources (see this complete list from the FDA for additional brands affected). 

Salmonella can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever with onset usually 8 to 72 hours after ingestion of contaminated foods. Treatment is generally supportive with replacement of fluids and electrolytes, but certainly check with your doctor if you (or your child) start to develop any of these symptoms after ingestion of a suspicious food. Many of the affected have been children, including one in North Carolina. No need to panic – likely all of these products have been taken off the shelves in stores, but just check your pantry and do a clean out if you have any peanut containing products from these sources! :)
