More grocery stores pulling peanut butter and other nut products

WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the country's largest grocery stores are pulling some of their store-brand products off their shelves, because of a recall of peanut butter and other nut products.

That's because a New Mexico company, Sunland, is expanding its recall of peanut butter and almond butter. The recall now includes cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products. Federal health officials say there have been 30 salmonella illnesses in 19 states can be traced to the Trader Joe's peanut butter.
