Salmonella recall expands to raw, roasted peanuts

Raw and roasted peanuts made by Sunland, Inc. are now being included in an ongoing nationwide recall of peanut and other nut products over potential salmonella contamination that has affected many popular brands.
Sunland announced on Friday that both in-shell and shelled raw and roasted peanuts within their current shelf life should not be eaten and the products should be disposed of immediately or returned for a refund.
The raw and roasted peanuts available to retail customers were distributed primarily under Sunland's own label and were distributed primarily to produce houses and nationally to numerous large supermarket, grocery and retail chains in addition to online sales, the company said in a Food and Drug Administration press release.
