In an ongoing recall of peanut and almond butter products over possible salmonella contamination, New Mexico-based Sunland Inc. announced Monday it expanded its recall yet again to include cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products sold at many U.S. supermarkets.

New products recalled include varieties of cookies sold at Whole Foods that contain peanut butter, peanut butter cracker snacks sold at Stop & Shop supermarkets, and various ice cream and chocolate snack products. Sunland’s recall now includes 101 products, and several retailers have issued additional recalls including items made with Sunland ingredients.

Sunland Inc. sells its nuts and nut butters to large groceries and other food distributors around the country. The company recalled products under multiple brand names after salmonella illnesses were linked Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, one of the brands manufactured by Sunland.

The recall was then expanded last week to include other peanut and almond butter products manufactured by Sunland, 76 products at the time.
