Trader Joe’s Recalls Peanut Butter

By EGP News Report

(CNS) – Trader Joe’s corporate officials say they are acting “out of an abundance of caution” and ordering the recall of one type of its house brand peanut butter over salmonella concerns.

“Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter” should not be eaten “pending health-related inquiries,” the Monrovia-based grocery chain stated.

The Food and Drug Administration posted the company’s voluntary recall on its web site, but did not comment on the company’s statement.

The potential salmonella contamination could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly or others with compromised immune systems. Healthy persons who get infected with salmonella experience fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and a most unpleasant distress of the lower intestinal system.

Trader Joe’s is offering refunds.
