Trader Joe's recalls some items tied to salmonella outbreak

January 23, 2009 |  4:18 pm

Trader Joe's today issued a voluntary recall of some products containing peanut butter linked to a salmonella outbreak that has sickened almost 500 people in 43 states.

The products are Sutter's Formula cookies and two kinds of granola bars with particular lot numbers. Those are among 180 products that companies have recalled in the salmonella outbreak, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has linked to a Peanut Corp. of America plant in Blakely, Ga.

The FDA has a searchable website for products that have been recalled.
