A massive peanut butter and nut product recall has some of the nation’s largest grocery store chains pulling store-brand products from their shelves. An outbreak of 30 salmonella cases across 19 states, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was traced back to New Mexico-based Sunland Inc.

Sunland Inc. issued a recall of products containing peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butters, tahini, and blanched and roasted peanut products. Sunland Inc. also produces store-brand products for a number of big name grocery chains.

Stores affected by the recall include Whole Foods Market, Target, Safeway, Fresh & Easy, Harry and David, Sprouts, Heinen’s, Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, and several other stores across the country. Some of these stores used Sunland ingredients in food products they prepared and packaged themselves. Brand names included in the recall are Target’s Archer Farms, Safeway’s Open Nature, Earth Balance, Fresh & Easy, Late July, Heinen’s, Joseph’s, Natural Value, Naturally More, Peanut Power Butter, Serious Food, Snaclite Power, Sprouts Farmers Market, Sprouts, Sunland and Dogsbutter.

Recalled products have sell-by dates between May 1, 2013 and September 24, 2013. Below is a list of products, jar sizes, and UPC numbers. If you have purchased any of the products listed, you’re encouraged to throw it away and contact Sunland’s 24/7 recall hotline: 1-800-837-1018.
