Peanut butter lovers being cautious after company recalls products

Posted: Updated:

TYLER, TX (KYTX) --  A peanut butter maker is pulling nearly 80 products from store shelves. Sunland Inc. is taking the action after one product in particular was linked to salmonella. It's Trader Joe's Creamy Valencia Peanut Butter, made between May 1st and September 24th.

For mom Sheila Richardson, who has four kids, she says PB&J's are her crowd-pleaser. "It's a quick meal, so anytime they get hungry I say let's go get you some peanut butter," Richardson said.

She's not the only one that keeps peanut butter stocked. The East Texas Food Bank says peanut butter is vital to its supply.

"It's a very popular item for children and for seniors. It's something that has a wide appeal," Dennis Cullinane, Executive Director for ETFB, said.

Cullinane says the food bank was notified of the recall, which includes some brands they're used to seeing.

"So we immediately were able to check through our computer systems and also hand check through some of the sorted products to make sure that they weren't here," Cullinane said.

None of the 76 peanut products showed up.

No one has died from the contamination. There have been 29 cases of the illness in 18 states, and most of those cases were children under age 18.
