A peanut butter recall is impacting a local food bank. Second Harvest is notifying its clients about the Sunland peanut butter recall.
Salmonella may have contaminated certain products the food bank handed out. Those are Sunland Creamy Peanut Butter and Sunland Natural Creamy Peanut Butter.
The Salvation Army is also alerting its clients about the peanut butter recall.
The organization purchased 24 cases of the recalled peanut butter from Second Harvest Food Bank.
People should not eat these products and should throw them away. Second Harvest says if you have not opened the jars, you are asked to return them to the agency.
The food bank distributed more than 16,000 jars of the recalled product.
This is part of a larger Sunland recall which has been linked to a salmonella outbreak at Trader Joe's grocery stores. So far, 18 states have reported illnesses from the peanut butter; Tennessee is not one of them.
