September 28, 2012 - Newman's Own Organics announced today that it is recalling certain lots of Peanut Butter Newman-O's Sandwich Crème Cookies because they may be contaminated with salmonella, a potentially deadly foodborne pathogen. This recall is being conducted in response to the expanded scope of Sunland, Inc.’s recall of nut butter products, which have been linked to at least 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states. Signs and symptoms of salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) may include the sudden onset of nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, fever, and diarrhea (which may be bloody or watery).
Sunland Peanut Butter Recall Update 11/28/12: Officials from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) have ordered the New Mexico-based Sunland Inc. processing plant closed after it was found to have manufactured ingredients contained in many recently recalled peanut butter products. An inspection conducted by federal health regulators revealed multiple strains of salmonella at the company’s processing facility, and determined that the plant’s owner knowingly distributed contaminated food to consumers.
