This fall, grocery chain Trader Joe's recalled dozens of its peanut, almond and cashew butters due to potential salmonella contamination, a sweep that began with its Creamy Salted Valenica Peanut Butter. On Nov. 26, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration shut down Sunland Inc., the company that manufactured the products. It was the FDA's first use of its power to suspend facility registrations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared the outbreak over in late November, reporting that 42 people were infected across 20 states. Here, Sunland produces peanut butter at a New Mexico plant in 2005.
