Trader Joe’s is involved in a voluntary recall of salmonella-tainted peanut and almond butter.
Only the Trader Joe's Valencia Peanut Butter and the Almond Butter with Roasted Flax Seeds are being recalled.
In the Maplewood and Brentwood area, these stores are NOT involved in the recall: Walmart, Whole Foods, Target, Dierbergs, Schnucks, Shop n Save.
In the latest update, 35 people in 19 states have reported salmonella food poisoning that was later linked to the contaminated nut butters, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The almond and peanut butters were manufactured between May 1 and Sept. 24 by Sunland, Inc.
About two-thirds of the illness were reported in children younger than 10.
Salmonella symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can cause infections in the very young or old and people with weakened immune systems.
