Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Recall Due to Salmonella Risk: Lawyers for Outbreak

A Salmonella outbreak has been associated with Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt.  To date, there are 29 confirmed cases in 18 states.

Trader Joe’s has issued a warning to consumers regarding the company’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt. The warning simply states that the company has removed the peanut butter from sale “due to pending health-related inquiries.” The Salmonella food poisoning outbreak is not mentioned. However, state health departments have implicated that brand of Trader Joe’s peanut butter, stating it may be related to the outbreak. They are telling consumers to discard any of the product with use by dates between 5/23/2012 and 6/28/2013.

There is not a lot of information available about the outbreak yet

If you have consumed this product and are experiencing the symptoms of Salmonella, including diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal cramps, see your healthcare provider immediately.

The symptoms of salmonellosis usually begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure. Most people will recover, but some, especially those in high risk groups, may suffer serious complications. Long term consequences of this infection can be severe, including reactive arthritis and heart disease.
