Trader Joe’s expands peanut butter recall

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Trader Joe's food stores has recalled its sliced green apples with all natural peanut butter.

The FDA said the recall expands Trader Joe's previously announced voluntary recall of its Peanut Butter Chewy Coated & Drizzled Granola Bars, Nutty Chocolate Chewy Coated & Drizzled Granola Bars and its Sutter's-brand formula cookies.

The recalls are linked with Salmonella-contaminated peanut butter manufactured by the Peanut Corp. of America.

Trader Joe's operates stores in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
