Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter recalled for possible Salmonella Contamination

Trader Joe's Creamy Valencia Peanut Butter Recall - FDA

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the voluntary recall of Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter because it could potentially be contaminated with Salmonella. No illnesses have been reported to the company prior to this recall announcement.

Salmonella can cause serious infections in the very young, the elderly, and those with a compromised immune system. Most people will recover from a salmonella infection. There are several symptoms of a salmonella infection, including fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. The infection could enter into the bloodstream and cause a more serious illness requiring immediate medical attention.

The Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter was sold under the Trader Joe’s brand and at their stores nationwide. The peanut butter was packed in 16-ounce plastic jars. All the date codes are involved in the recall.

Trader Joe’s has removed all the recalled peanut butter from their store shelves. Consumers may have the recalled peanut butter at their homes; they should not eat the it. Instead, they can take the product back to Trader Joe’s for a full refund, or dispose of the product.

The peanut butter supplier and the FDA are investigating the source of the problem. Because of this, the production and distribution of the Valencia Peanut Butter product has been put on hold.
