NM company linked to illness expands peanut recall

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- A New Mexico food company that produced the peanut
butter linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning has expanded an ongoing
recall of its products to include raw and roasted peanuts.
   The federal Food and Drug Administration said Saturday that Sunland Inc.
added raw and roasted shelled and in-shell peanuts sold in quantities from two
ounces to 50 pounds to its recall. FDA inspectors have found salmonella in raw
peanuts from the Sunland processing plant.
   Sunland manufactured the peanut butter sold by Trader Joe's that's been
linked to 35 salmonella illnesses across 19 states. Sunland has recalled everything
made in its contaminated plant since March 2010.
   Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Children, the elderly
and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk.
