Peanut butter recall expanded

Posted October 2, 2012



The Trader Joe's peanut butter recall I mentioned on the blog last week has now been expanded to peanut butter sold at other stores including Whole Foods, Target, Harry & David and more.  It also now includes cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products.  The recall has been initiated because of possible salmonella contamination.  According to THIS article, brand names that are recalled include Archer Farms, Earth Balance, Fresh & Easy, Late July, Heinen's, Joseph's, Natural Value, Naturally More, Open Nature, Peanut Power Butter and more.

For more information on this recall from the FDA website, click HERE.

Thanks to Kelsey Carlson for Tweeting the information on the expanded recall!

    Speaking of peanut butter, a lady was offering samples of the new Planters NUTRITION peanut butter but they are flavored and very unique! I bought the cinnamon, nuts and granola spread and it's AWESOME! Not cheap though, it was $3.49 reg price for 12 oz jar - fortunately there was a $1 coupon attached.

    So good just out of the jar!

    It's not just PB, almond butter and tahini are both on that list.

    Wow, kb79 - Harry and David called you about the recall and offered a gift voucher? Amazing customer service! I have never bought their peanut butter, but my mom always loved their Moose Munch. Good stuff!

    Harry and David peanut spread products as a phone call to discard the product I had bought do to possible salmonella contamination and they would send me a $10 gift voucher
