As expected, the U.S. recalls of snacks, candy and other foods that are made with Sunland Inc. (Salmonella contaminated) peanut butter are growing in number.

A couple of more recent ones:

Several Fresh & Easy nut butters (almond, cashew, peanut and tahini) marked with 'Best Before' dates from May 1, 2013 to September 24, 2013 are now on the recall list because of potential contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

Gretchen’s Shoebox Express in Seattle, Washington, has also initiated a recall of Evolution Fresh Brand Cinnamon Apple & Almond Butter Sandwiches and Almond Butter that contain Almond Butter associated with the Sunland, Inc. recall.

There will be more. You can bet on it.

My suggestion - especially to elderly people and parents of young children: for the next couple of weeks or so, pass on all processed products containing peanut or almond or any other nut butter. Of course, it may not have come from Sunland, but there is no way of knowing. Better to be safe.

To your good health,
