Have You Been Avoiding Peanut Butter Products Lately?

Who would have thought peanut butter would ever get so much press? The sticky spread is still the center of the latest salmonella scare, and products continue to be pulled from shelves as a precaution. Starbucks is the most recent company to temporarily rid their stores of goods containing peanut butter. Have you taken similar precautionary moves in your own home?

Is this just in the US? I haven't heard anything about it in Aus. I eat peanut butter on toast for breakfast every morning, yummmm. :)

I had to toss some Luna and Clif bars and I told my hubby to avoid his beloved PB crackers, but otherwise, I'm just rolling with it.

No. The only PB I eat is Skippy Natural, which is supposed to be okay. And I don't really buy any of the processed items that contain it. Not even salmonella can keep me away from peanut butter, I looove it.

I'm not a big fan of PB, when I do have anything like it I have almond or soy nut butter instead. Plus, I've heard so many negative things about regular PB & even organic PB that turns me off from buying it ever.

I was diagnosed as allergic to peanuts a few months ago. Strangely enough, I'd eaten pb and apple slices for breakfast before the test, but realized I am allergic after I quit eating peanuts and several different symptoms cleared up. I was really upset over the allergy, until this recall, when I realized that it may have prevented serious illnesses in me and my young sons (we don't buy and PB anymore because of my allergy).

Nope. I buy my peanut butter from Whole Foods either their 365 brand or I grind my own there. I don't really buy any other peanut butter products, they never taste really peanut buttery to me.

No. My PB is from 100% unblanched, unsalted peanuts.

I thought I should clarify my angry little post from above - I read an article in the Wash Post today that basically details how little oversight there is from the FDA and state governments, and that this particular plant had had 12 previous *known* cases of salmonella in the past few years that had basically been ignored or covered up. Ugh.

Wasn't there just a Peter Pan recall a year or so ago? What the heck is wrong with these food manufacturers? It p*sses me off to no end.

I really miss dipping apple slices into peanut butter. :(

I haven't paid any attention. I've had peanut butter and honey sandwiches a lot latey and I am still fine.

I grind my own at the market so what I eat is pretty freakin fresh, and I don't eat the processed foods that the salmonella stuff is in so the scare has not affected me directly.

I did accidentally eat a recalled Luna bar last week but I think I'm ok. And I haven't been avoiding Skippy since I've had the same giant jar for a few months now and didn't get sick.
