Portales peanut butter plant on FDA radar in the past

Portales, NM - The New Mexico peanut butter plant being linked to the current salmonella outbreak was on the radar in the past.

The Food and Drug Administration says it found what is called "objectionable conditions" two years ago but classified the findings as not meeting the agency's threshold for action.

A recent inspection found salmonella in the plant which produced trader joe's valencia creamy peanut butter and many other nut butters and nut products for several large national grocery chains.

New mexico-based Sunland Inc. has recalled everything made in the plant since March of 2010, a total of 240 products.
