(Newser) – It turns out the Trader Joe's peanut butter recall was just the tip of the iceberg. Sunland, the New Mexico-based company that produces Trader Joe's Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter, today expanded the recall to include 76 different products, the LA Times reports. Most are other peanut butter varieties, but there are some almond butters, cashew butters, and even Tahini sauces mixed in as well, and they come under a host of brand banners, including Sprouts, Harry & David, and Safeway's Open Nature.

So far, only the Trader Joe's peanut butter has actually been linked to any salmonella cases—regulators have now tied it to 29 illnesses in 18 states. Sunland said it was recalling the products "as a precautionary step." Only products produced between May 1 and Sept. 24 are included. You can see the full list in this pdf.
