More Salmonella Peanut Butter Recalls Coming

FDA Finds Violations of Good Manufacturing Practices at Suspect Plant

Peanut Butter Recalls continued...

Recent peanut butter recalls include:

  • Trader Joe's: 7-ounce packages of sliced green apples with all-natural peanut butter and Peanut Butter Chew Coated & Drizzled Granola Bars, Nutty Chocolate Chewy Coated & Drizzled Granola Bars, and Sutter's Formula Cookies
  • Kellogg Company: All sizes of ShopRite Peanut Butter on Toasty Crackers and ShopRite Peanut Butter and Cheese Cracker Snacks
  • Falcon Trading Company/SunRidge Farms: Certain cases of Naturally Preferred Honey Nut Nuggets, SunRidge Tropical Golden Nuggets, SunRidge Chocolate Energy Bars, and SunRidge Energy Nuggets
  • Supreme Protein: Certain lots of Supreme Protein brand Peanut Butter Crunch Bars, Supreme Protein brand Caramel Nut Bars, and Supreme Protein brand Caramel Nut (Energy) Bars

The PCA's products aren't sold directly to stores, but they were distributed to a wide range of companies for use in products or for further distribution. The FDA and other health officials have visited nearly 1,000 firms that purchased products from the PCA, according to Sundlof.

You won't find "PCA" or "Peanut Corporation of America" on product labels, Sundlof notes. If a peanut butter product isn't on the FDA's list of recalled products, "consumers may wish to look at the company's web site or call the toll-free number listed on most packaging" to check on its status, says Sundlof. He cautions that the FDA hasn't verified any information that consumers may get directly from companies about peanut butter safety.

"If consumers are in doubt about the safety of their products, they should not eat them until the scope of the recall is clear," says Sundlof.
