A national peanut recall has hit close to home.
A recall has been issued this week for all Sunland Inc Peanut products. The FDA is investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to the product.
The recall includes raw and raosted shelled and in-shell peanuts sold in quantities from 2 ounces to 50 pounds which are within their current shelf life or have no stated expiration date.
Sunland Inc reports that it has ceased the production and distribution of all products from both its nut butter facility and its peanut processing facility.
Big Country Farm Center in Mineola says that in recent days they have sold close to 20 pounds of Sunland Peanuts and are warning their customers of the recall. Customers are encouraged to return Big Country for a refund or a swap.
Sunland peanut products are sold at multiple grocery establishments across East Texas.
