China Suspends US Sunland Nut Imports

China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine announced plans on Friday to suspend imports of nuts produced by US Sunland over concerns of Salmonella contamination, according to a report from China Daily. Nut products associated with the company have sickened 41 people in 20 US states, and forced the now-shuttered US Sunland to recall over 200 batches of products including peanut and other nut butters. A voluntary recall was initiated on September 24 and expanded on October 15. For more information on Sunland’s domestic recall, visit FDA.gov.
