  • Peanut butter recall expands beyond Trader Joe's

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A New Mexico-based company is recalling 76 types of peanut butter and almond butter after one of its products was linked to a salmonella outbreak at Trader Joe's groceries.

    Sunland Inc. recalled the products under multiple brand names after the Food and Drug Administration and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states to Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter. Sunland manufactures and packages the Trader Joe's product.

    A Sunland spokeswoman said the company recalled the other peanut and almond butters because they were manufactured with the same equipment as the Trader Joe's product. None of the other products have been linked to illnesses.

    Trader Joe's recalled the Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter from its stores Saturday.

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexicans can soon start to vote in the general election.

    Absentee voting begins Oct. 9, and people can go to their county clerk's office to cast a ballot in person. Voter registration also ends then, making it possible for New Mexicans to register and vote on that same day.

    Early voting starts Oct. 20 at alternate polling locations established by the clerks and continues through Nov. 3.

    Election Day is Nov. 6 and that's also the deadline for returning absentee ballots.

    Four years ago, slightly more than 833,000 people cast ballots in the general election or nearly 70 percent of the state's registered voters.
