The peanut butter used in this product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella 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. This recall is being initiated because the peanut butter used in the product is supplied by Sunland, Inc., which has issued a national recall of some of its products. 66,041 cases of pint size and 837 cases of 5 qt. size F-1060-2013
