Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Remember that Trader Joe's peanut butter recall that happened at the end of September due to a salmonella scare? Well, it's been extended to include even more peanut products from Sunland, Inc.'s peanut processing plant in Portales, New Mexico. The recall now includes raw and roasted peanuts, both in-shell and shelled, which are within their current shelf life or have no stated expiration date.

Impacted brands include Sunland, Natural Value, Valencia, the Nut Shop, and Treasured Harvest. The company's website has a list of products and serial numbers that are at risk, and if you've got any of their items we highly suggest you cross-check.

Hopefully this doesn't end up being further expanded to include Reese's peanut butter cups. The upcoming Halloween holiday just wouldn't be the same without them.
