Recall of peanut butter and peanut-based products

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is warning consumers not to eat certain peanut butter and peanut-based products which have been imported from the US because of possible contamination with salmonella. Salmonella is a bacterium that causes food poisoning. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Action. An outbreak of a strain of salmonella called Salmonella Bredeney in the US has been linked to peanut butter produced by a company called Sunland Inc. As a result, the manufacturer is recalling a wide range of peanut butter and peanut-based products. Other products containing nuts and seeds are also being recalled. An initial recall of products in the US in September did not affect the UK as the products involved were not distributed in Europe. However, because the product recall has widened, US authorities have now alerted the European Commission to possible distribution of affected products in a number of member states, including the UK.
