Salmonella outbreak prompts peanut butter recall

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

You might have noticed some brands have been missing from the shelves.

Here in Lubbock, Target has pulled the store brand Archer Farms and Sam's and WalMart have pulled the brand Naturally More due to a salmonella outbreak.

Dozens of cases have been reported across several states. The brands are associated with grocery store chain Trader Joe's which issued the recall after salmonella was discovered in their Valencia peanut butter.

So far, only the Trader Joe's peanut butter has been linked to salmonella illnesses.

But peanut butters from all the named brands were made on the same line of a factory owned by Sunland Inc. in Portales, New Mexico, so the company opted to pull all the possibly affected products from shelves.

WalMart issued a statement today saying:

"At Walmart and Sam's Club we're committed to providing our customers and members with safe, quality foods.

As soon as we learned of the Sunland Inc peanut butter recall, we immediately notified our stores and clubs to pull any affected product.

We also instituted a sales restriction to block any possible sales of the recalled item.

Customers and members who believe they purchased affected Natural More Peanut Butter products may return it to their local store or club for a full refund."
