What do ice cream, salads, and cookies all have in common? Peanuts! And, um, salmonella.
Nearly three weeks after it first began, the nationwide recall on all manner of peanutty products has expanded dramatically -- and it's hitting the organic sector particularly hard. The recall now includes raw and processed nut goods produced over the last year by New Mexico company Sunland Inc., a big producer of conventional peanuts and the nation's largest exporter of organic peanut stuffs. The Food and Drug Administration has filled its Flickr stream with helpful photos of hundreds of recalled, delicious-looking treats.
