Peanut butter recall includes major retailers

Published October 01, 2012

Associated Press

A New Mexico company has expanded its recall of peanut butter and almond butter to include cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products.

Sunland Inc. sells its nuts and nut butters to large groceries and other food distributors around the country. The company recalled products under multiple brand names after salmonella illnesses were linked to Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, one of the brands manufactured by Sunland.

The federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention says there are now 30 illnesses in 19 states that can be traced to the Trader Joe's peanut butter. No other foods have been linked to the illnesses, but Sunland recalled other products manufactured on the same equipment as the Trader Joe's product.

   That's a lot of possibly tainted peanut butter out there!  This one is really scarey, since small children are often given peanut butter samiches etc. and those on limited income, (such as our elderly) may use more peanut butter as a protein source. 

I quit buying peanut butter in a jar a long time ago, and opted to get fresh from one of the stores I go to.  I can use a machine and make just the amount I want.  It's a lot less oily, doesn't have the burnt taste jar peanut butter can have, and I refrigerate it to make it last longer.  I do this with almonds to make almond butter etc.  Then, I saw some articles about making your own peanut butter at home.  I haven't tried this yet but thought it interesting.  If I made my peanut butter at home, I could be certain the equipment is clean.  As for knowing the source of the raw peanuts being safe, that would be another thing I think.  It's always something.  We just have to do the best we can I guess. 
Here's one link to making your own peanut butter:

Shelled and unshelled peanuts added to peanut butter recall (Video)
October 14, 2012

The peanut butter recall initiated Sept. 24 by Sunland, Inc. has now been extended to include raw and roasted shelled and unshelled peanuts due to the concern people may become ill with salmonella. As of Oct. 5, 35 people have become ill with a strain of salmonella identical to the one identified at Sunland's Peanut Processing Plant in Portales, New Mexico.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and state and local health departments are working together to investigate the outbreak of salmonella illnesses and to provide more information as it becomes available.

Sunland, Inc. voluntarily issued a recall on its peanuts on Oct.12, citing ongoing investigations by both the company and the FDA as the reason for this recall. A detailed explanation and listing of recalled peanut products is found at the company website.

FDA says peanut company tied to salmonella outbreak knowingly shipped tainted products
November 16, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration says a New Mexico peanut company linked to a recent 20-state salmonella outbreak distributed contaminated peanut and almond butters after its own internal testing showed the products were contaminated.

Sunland Inc. is the nation's largest organic peanut butter processor, though it also produces many non-organic products. The company recalled hundreds of nuts and nut butters manufactured since 2010 after one of its products, Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Peanut Butter, was linked to 41 salmonella illnesses around the county in September. The recall affected numerous products -- ranging from raw nuts to cookies to tahini spread -- across many popular brands sold at retailers including Whole Foods, Stop & Shop supermarkets and Target.
 ::snipping2::FDA reports released this week show that repeated agency inspections found problems at the plant since 2007, though government officials didn't take any action or release the results of those inspections until after the illnesses were discovered this year.

In a month-long investigation in September and October, FDA inspectors found 28 different samples of salmonella in Sunland's plant. Three of the samples showed the presence of the strain "Salmonella Bredeney," which is tied to the outbreak of salmonellosis. The agency also found improper handling of the products, unclean equipment and uncovered trailers of peanuts outside the facility that were exposed to rain and birds.

The FDA's report said the agency found no records that documented production equipment was cleaned, including super-sized bags used by the Sunland to store peanuts that were used to store both raw and roasted peanuts. There was also a leaking sink in a washroom which resulted in water puddles, and "the plant is not built to allow floors, walls and ceilings to be adequately cleaned," the FDA said.

"Investigators found that employees improperly handled equipment, containers, and utensils used to hold and store food," the agency report reads. "Employees handling peanut products wiped gloved hands on street clothes and other times failed to wash their hands or change gloves. There were no hand washing sinks in the peanut processing building production or packaging areas and employees had bare-handed contact with ready-to-package peanuts."

The FDA said between June 2009 and August 2012, the company's tests showed portions of 11 lots, or daily production runs, tested positive for salmonella but were still distributed.
