School Districts to Destroy Recalled Peanut Butter
School districts in California will destroy their supplies of peanut butter that are part of a nationwide recall by the manufacturer, Sunland Inc., the state Department of Education announced Friday.
A voluntary recall of some products made with peanut butter produced by Sunland began Sept. 23 after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported salmonella contamination in a jar of Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Peanut Butter.
On Oct. 5, the FDA announced that the recall had expanded to at least 300 products sold under a variety of brands. Some included almond butter, cashew butter, tahini, and roasted blanched peanut products. The agency at that time said 35 cases of salmonella-linked sickness had been reported in 19 states.
