Today, the New York State Office of General
Services instructed our Food Services department to destroy its
supply of Sunland Creamy Peanut Butter and Smucker’s Uncrustables,
due to a voluntary recall of the products. Peanut butter used in
these products is associated with the Sunland, Inc. recall due to
possible Salmonella contamination.
The district complied immediately and
quarantined its supply.
It is important to note that there have been no
reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product,
but the company is nonetheless acting with an abundance of caution
to protect consumer safety.
The recall does not impact any other Smucker
products including those distributed through retail channels such as
grocery, convenience or warehouse club stores. Smucker produces its
own peanut butter for branded peanut butters and Uncrustables
distributed in retail channels.
This voluntary recall is being made with the
full knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
