The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that over three dozen people in 20 states have been sickened with Salmonella Bredeney, a type of bacteria that causes symptoms such as abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and fever.

Sunland Inc. issued an initial recall on September 24, 2012, and has since expanded the recall to hundreds of products. Products range from peanut butter to other peanut-related food items, nuts, spreads, seeds, and more. Recalled products may have been used to make Smuckers Uncrustables sandwiches that were provided to school children through the National School Lunch Program.
