The salmonella scare that's removed thousands of jars of peanut butter from store shelves is expanding, now including shelled peanuts.
Hines Nut Company is recalling nearly two million pounds of in-shell peanuts as a precautionary move.
The affected peanuts come in several different packages and sizes.
The most common peanuts come in a red and blue bag that says "Hines Salted Jumbo Virginia Peanuts" and have a best buy date ranging from Oct. 12, 2012 to Aug. 27, 2013.
Hines sells their in-shell peanuts to Dollar General and Walmart stores.
The nuts were processed at Sunland, the plant at the center of the salmonella outbreak that has sickened at least 35 people.
Customers can return the affected peanuts to the store for a full refund.
