Nut Butter Products Recalls Continue with Cookies
In light of Sunland Inc's recall of nut butter products last month, Newman's Own Organics is recalling some of its sandwich creme cookies because the products might be contaminated with salmonella.
The "organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems," according to a news release from the federal Food and Drug Administration.
It's a voluntary, limited recall, the release states.
The cookies were distributed nationwide, and the recall is for expiration dates May 27, 2013 and May 3, 2013, it states.
It expanded that recall on Sept. 26 to include its Cashew Butter, Tahini and Roasted Blanched Peanut Products, a release states.
Some Trader Joe's products, namely the Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, are included.
The recall is limited to products manufactured between May 1, 2012 and September 24, 2012.
Recently, Trader Joe's also recalled the 16 ounce jar of its Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds Crunchy and Salty.
