FDA Advises Consumers Not to Eat Trader Joe's Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter

Washington, DC: The FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health officials are investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Bredeney infections possibly linked to Trader Joe' Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter, with a Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) identifier of 97111.

The CDC reports a total of 29 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Bredeney from 18 states. Although the FDA has not released which states have been affected, the LA Times reports "several states have issued warnings to residents not to eat the peanut butter. According to the individual states' health departments, three cases were in Massachusetts, one was in Rhode Island and one was in North Carolina."

According to the CDC, people became sick June 11 to as recent as September, and more children have been affected than adults. The rate of diagnosed infections in children less than five years old is higher than the rate in all other persons. Young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are the most likely to have severe infections.
