The nationwide recall of peanut butter has expanded to foods, ice cream and snacks also made with almond butter, cashew butter, tahini and peanut products from Sunland Inc.
The CDC has reported that 35 people in 19 states have been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Bredeney. Eight people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. More than 63% percent of those sick are children younger than 10.
For a detailed list of the recalled products, go to the U.S. FDA's food safety website.
