(WHAS11) -- The list of contaminated products in the peanut poisoning outbreak is 10 pages long with over 400 peanut products, from moon pies to ice cream to peanut butter.

It's a list that now includes raw and roasted peanuts all traced back to a New Mexico factory in Portales.

Sunland Inc sells those bulk raw and roasted peanuts and makes peanut butter for brands sold at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Walmart, Kroger, Target and Costco.

The FDA is warning consumers not to eat any products associates with Sunland and to discard them right away because they may be tainted with salmonella.

Nearly three dozen people have been sickened in 19 states from coast to coast.

Now there is concern that with so many products on the list that number could be growing.
