(REUTERS) — The New Mexico food producer linked to salmonella-tainted peanut butter has expanded its recall to include raw and roasted peanuts, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
Sunland Inc has also halted production at its nut butter and peanut processing facilities, the FDA said on Saturday.
The moves came after food safety investigators looking into the tainted peanut butter inspected Sunland's production line and found salmonella that DNA tests determined was identical to the strain that caused last month's outbreak.

In all, 35 people in 19 states have been infected with salmonella, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in an outbreak linked to peanut butter made by Sunland that was sold under a variety of names, including Trader Joe's brand Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter with Sea Salt.
