Sunland, Inc. Announces Voluntarily Limited Recall of Sunland and Sunland-Related Peanut Butter, Nut Butters and Other Products Due to Possible Salmonella contamination [UPDATED]

September 25, 2012

This recall has been revised and updated multiple times since the initial recall notice. Please check below for a list of affected products.

Sunland, Inc. announced on September 25, 2012, a voluntary limited recall of its Almond Butter and Peanut Butter products, manufactured between May 1, 2012 and September 24, 2012, because these products may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
