Peanut butter recall spreads

Posted: Updated:

A recall of peanut butter that might have salmonella was originally just contained to a trader joes brand and has now spread to over 101 products in several stores across the country. Including some Archer Farms nut products sold at Target.

Those sickened reported becoming ill between June 11 and Sept. 11, according to the CDC. Almost two-thirds of those who became ill were children under the age of 10. No deaths have been reported.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 hours to 72 hours after infection. It is most dangerous to children, the elderly and others with weak immune systems.
