More Peanut Butter Involved in Salmonella Scare

Last week we learned that peanut butter might be the culprit in the latest salmonella scare. First, King Nut and Parnell's Pride peanut butter were recalled, but now the list grows as more companies pull their products from the shelves. The FDA has traced the tainted peanut butter to a Georgia plant owned by Peanut Corporation of America, which distributes peanut butter and peanut flavor to numerous companies. Since six people have died from salmonella poisoning, the FDA is taking no chances and advising everyone to stay away from all products containing peanut butter including cookies, crackers, cakes, energy bars, and ice cream.

Some known foods to avoid are Little Debbie snacks, Kellogg Keebler crackers, and some Luna, Clif, and ZonePerfect bars. The companies who make Jif, Smuckers, Eagle Brand, and Peter Pan peanut butter said their products are safe.

For a complete list of products involved in the recall, check out the FDA's website.

I bought Pure Protein pb bars, SAM'S CLUB size, last week. I had one yesterday. Checked the FDA site and they don't have it up there. Now I'm scared to eat them, but sad because I love them and don't want to throw them away. I just emailed the company to see what they say. Sad news for pb lovers!

Man, I'm probably teeming with salmonella. I eat Crunchy Peanut Butter Clif bars daily, and I've already eaten my way through two of the last three boxes that I bought at the same time. And of course the one box that's left has a date that's listed in the recall... Still, I hate to throw them out.

Oh phew! I just checked the dates on my Nutz over Chocolate Luna bars and they're safe! Good thing, too, I bought a case and those things get pricey!

What about candy that has peanut butter in it... it's not listed on the FDA site, but still...?

Good thing I don't eat stuff with peanut butter in it. If I want PB, I buy the all-natural kind and I eat plain. Just steer clear of all the processed foods with peanut butter and you'll probably be fine. It blows my mind that some food factories simply do NOT properly clean their equipment...now they're going to lose millions of dollars in revenue from the recall. Seriously, an ounce of prevention is all it would take.
