New Mexico girl victim of tainted peanut butter

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - State health officials say a 5-year-old girl from Roosevelt County has been identified as the 36th victim of a salmonella outbreak in peanut butter and other nut products from eastern New Mexico.

The girl is from Roosevelt County, the area where the tainted products were processed. Health officials say the girl was never hospitalized and has recovered.

She is the first person in the state linked to the outbreak, which the Centers for Disease Control says has sickened 35 other people in 19 states.

The Portales peanut processing plant, Sunland Inc., has shuttered while it conducts a top to bottom scrubbing and upgrade to equipment and safety controls.

More than 300 products, including peanuts, peanut butter and other nut products processed at the plant, have been recalled.
