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.
