Harry & David Peanut Butter Caught Up in Sunland Recall

Sunland Inc. was apparently also making peanut butter products for the popular mail order food company known as Harry and David, LLC. It joined the peanut butter recall that has been under way since Sept 22 when Trader Joe’s recalled its brand made by Portales, NM-based Sunland.

Recalled Harry and David peanut butter brands include 1 these 2 oz. jars all with “Best Buy” dates of 01MAY13 through 24SEPT13:

- Harry & David® Crunchy Almond and Peanut Butter,

- Harry & David® Creamy Raspberry Peanut Spread,

Also recalled are these multi-component food items containing peanut butter:

- Harry & David® Apple Snack Box,

- Wolferman’s® Bee Sweet Gift Basket,

- Wolferman’s® Hearty Snack Gift Basket,

- Wolferman’s® All-Day Assortment Gift Basket,

- and Wolferman’s® Father’s Day Basket.

On its own, Sunland has recalled about 100 of its own brands of peanut and other nut butters for possible Salmonella contamination. All were manufactured between May 1, 2012 and Sept. 24, 2012.

They’ve been associated with a rare strain of Salmonella that has sickened at least 30 people in 19 states. Anyone who thinks they may be suffering from Salmonella symptoms, including fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain should seek medical attention immediately.

Products subject to this recall were sold nationwide through Harry & David and Wolferman’s catalogs and websites, as well as through Harry & David stores, between May 1, 2012 and September 25, 2012.

The “Best By” date is located on the upper part of the peanut butter product jar near the lid.

Individual jars of the recalled peanut butter products sold through Harry & David stores have UPC numbers of 8099473871, 8099473872, or 8099473873 printed on the Bar Code. The recalled multi-component food items have lot code numbers of 1212M through 2372M, 1212H through 2372H, or 1212C through 2372C.
