MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state Agriculture Department is encouraging consumers to check their pantries for Sunland almond butter and peanut butter products that have been recalled because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
The department says its inspectors are checking grocery stores and wholesale food warehouses to make sure the products are removed. The department says the recalled products were sold in Alabama at Kroger, Target, Wal-Mart and Publix stores, but there may also be other stores.
Sunland announced it was recalling almond butter and peanut butter products manufactured between May 1 and Sept. 24. The products have "best if used by" dates between May 1, 2013 and Sept. 24, 2013. Sunland says the products can be returned to the grocery for a full refund.
