The FDA’s top priority is ensuring the safety of our food supply. 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’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter, with a Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) identifier of 97111.
The CDC recommends that consumers do not eat Trader Joe’s Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt. This is especially important for children under the age of 5 years, elderly adults, and people with weak immune systems.
Dispose of any remaining jars of peanut butter in the home or return the product to any Trader Joe’s grocery store. Trader Joe’s has encouraged consumers to return the product to any Trader Joe’s store for a full refund.
