NIWOT, Colo. (AP) -- Earth Balance is voluntarily recalling its 16 oz. jars of almond butter because of a possible health risk.

In a statement Tuesday, the company says its Earth Balance Almond Butter was manufactured by New Mexico-based Sunland Inc. Sunland manufactured the Trader Joes Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has linked to 29 salmonella illnesses in 18 states.

Sunland has recalled a total of 76 types of peanut butter and almond butter that were manufactured with the same equipment as the Trader Joes' product.

Earth Balance says its voluntary recall involves its Earth Balance Almond Butter product with "best by" dates between May 2013 and September 2013. No other Earth Balance products are included in the voluntary recall.
