Transcript for Peanut Butter Recalled in Salmonella Scare
And, now, the latest on the major recall of a staple in american kitchens, peanut butter. The recall is growing. The centers for disease control has now confirmed that at least 30 people in 19 states were all sickened by salmonella, most of them children. And the clues are point iing investigators toward some well-known brand names, trader joe's, whole foods and target. Abc's steve osunsami has more details. Reporter: What's especially frightening is that most of the people who've gotten sick from the recalled peanut butter are children under the age of 10. I am concerned. I love peanut butter. You don't know what you're getting. Very scary. Reporter: This began with one brand of sea salt peanut bter at trader joe's, but the recall has now cleared out peanut butter aisles at kroger, whole foods and target. Investigators have traced the trouble to sunland incorporated, a peanut butter manufacturer in new mexico that sells products in grocery stores across the country. The list of recalled peanut butter products is 101 items long, and now includes nut butters made with almonds, cashews and sesame seeds. And it gets worse. Companies like the oregon ice cream company and fairytale brownies, which usedhe recalled nut butters to make cookies and other baked goods, are now recalling their products, too. People have been getting sick over the last month and because there is often a two-week delay or so in the reporting time, we expect to hear about cases for the next week or two. Reporter: We should make clear that none of this affects jif, skip by or other main brands. Today, we talked with the managers at that peanut butter company in new mexico. They told us they test their product every half hour, that their peanut butter is safe a that is tiillnesses are a mystery. Steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta.
