Rite Aid pulls more peanut products


CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid on Feb. 18 added six products identified by the manufacturer as containing peanuts from Peanut Corporation of America, currently the focus of a Food and Drug Administration investigation into potential salmonella contamination, to be pulled from store shelves and included in the company's initial voluntary recall announced Feb. 6.

Rite Aid is not aware of any reported cases of illness related to these products and removed the items from store shelves as a precautionary measure, the retailer stated.

While the company listed two of the items in its Feb. 6 press release announcing the voluntary recall, four nearly identical items by the same manufacturer but with different UPC codes were also pulled from Rite Aid store shelves by Feb. 6.
