Peanut butter company recalls peanuts and more

(WMC-TV) - Action News 5 has new information this morning as about a recall. The New Mexico food company linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning has expanded its recall to include raw and roasted peanuts.

Sunland began a voluntary recall of peanut butter on September 24. The recall was later expanded to other products, and the company's peanut processing plant in New Mexico was shut down.

Now the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found salmonella in raw peanuts from the same plant. Sunland has now recalled everything made in its contaminated plant since March 2010.

That peanut butter was sold by Trader Joe's, and has been connected to 35 salmonella illnesses across 19 states so far.
