WASHINGTON -

A widening recall of peanut butter and other nut products involves some of the nation's largest grocery store chains.

New Mexico-based Sunland has expanded its recall of peanut butter and almond butter to include cashew butters, tahini and blanched and roasted peanut products. The company sells nuts and nut butters to large groceries and other food distributors around the country. It recalled products under multiple brand names last month after salmonella illnesses were linked to Trader Joe's Peanut Butter, one of the brands it manufactures.

In addition to Trader Joe's, the recall includes some nut butters and nut products sold at Whole Foods Market, Target, Safeway, Fresh & Easy, Giant Food, Harry and David, Sprouts, Heinen's, Stop & Shop Supermarket Company, Giant Food of Landover, Md., and several other stores. Some of the stores used Sunland ingredients in items they prepared and packaged themselves.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there are now 30 salmonella illnesses in 19 states that can be traced to the Trader Joe's peanut butter alone.
