MARYVILLE (WATE) - Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee and the Salvation Army are notifying their clients about the recall of Sunland Peanut Butter.
Sunland, Inc. products manufactured between May 1 and September 24 may be contaminated with salmonella.
Illnesses from the peanut butter have been reported in 18 states. Currently, Tennessee is not listed.
Second Harvest distributed more than 16,000 jars of the recalled product.
"If you were given one of these products, do not eat them. If the product has been opened please dispose of it. If the container is still sealed, it can be returned to the agency where it was distributed," said Second Harvest Executive Director Elaine Streno.
The Salvation Army purchased 24 cases of peanut butter listed under the recall in early July from Second Harvest. In addition, donated jars of recalled product were also received by The Salvation Army through Second Harvest.
Although the distributed items may not be tainted, the Salvation Army food pantry has discarded all remaining product as a precaution and is directing its clients to do the same.
"We are taking this matter very seriously," said Knoxville Area Commander Maj. Albert Villafuerte. "The safety of our residents and clients are of utmost importance to us. We will err on the side of caution and take all necessary steps to maintain our safety standards."
