Peanuts associated with the Sunland, Inc. recall were used in the production of certain lots of Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter squeeze pack product and have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Flying Food Group is issuing this voluntary recall linked to the supplier’s recall to minimize any risk to public health.

All impacted product has been confirmed as removed from stores.
