Trader Joe’s Issues Peanut Butter Recall
By Cherri Gregg
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Trader Joe’s has issued a salmonella warning and voluntary recall on its Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter.
Although the company says it has not received any reports of illness, according to the CDC, the brand has been linked to 29 cases of salmonella infections across 18 states.
The peanut butter comes in a 16-ounce plastic jar with a brown top. The SKU number is 97111. No lot numbers have been released.
The FDA recommends that consumers do not eat the peanut butter and Trader Joes’ says customers can return it for a full refund.
Salmonella infections show symptoms including fever, diarrhea and stomach cramps.
The illness can last from four to seven days and most people get better without treatment.
There are Trader Joe’s located in Center City, Ardmore and Marlton, N.J.
