MARQUETTE - A recent peanut butter recall as been expanded to include peanut butter that was distributed locally by the Alger Marquette Community Action Board Commodities program.
The organization is advising anyone who has Sunland Peanut Butter in an 19 ounce jar with a "best if used by" date between March 1, 2011, and Sept. 24, 2013, to immediately dispose of it as the product may be contaminated with salmonella. Households that have received the product and still have peanut butter remaining in the jar should made sure the lid is on tightly before disposal, and should also dispose of any other products that may have been made using the Sunland peanut butter.
AMCAB advises people to wash their hands after handling the food or the jar. Anyone who consumed the product within the last three days and is experiencing stomach cramps, diarrhea, fever, nausea and vomiting should contact a health care provider. Symptoms can take up to three days to appear, but most often being 12 to 36 hours after consuming the salmonella.
