Watch what you're eating: The FDA expands a peanut recall

peanutsAs food recalls go, this is a big one: Last month the Food and Drug Administration issued a recall of peanut butter products from Sunland Inc. in New Mexico, after cases of salmonella among 29 people in 18 states were traced to its plant. The suspect peanut butter was marketed under a number of names, including brands sold at Costco, Harry & David, Target and Trader Joe's.

Last Friday, as more cases of salmonella surfaced, the recall was expanded to include both shelled and unshelled peanuts. Altogether, more than 200 foods containing peanuts are being recalled.

To see if you've purchased any foods that are included in the recall, go to this link.

FDA posts frequent announcements of other recall actions here. There have been 31 in the last week alone.
