Peanut Butter Contamination


The lists of what not to eat peanut butter related and the amount of people getting sick is growing.  475 people in 43 states and Canada have been reported ill due to the salmonella found in peanut butter from the Peanut Butter Corporation of America.  Their plant is located in Blakely, Georgia.  Their products are not directly sold to the public such as in supermarkets.  They are sold to certain food manufacturers and institutions.  Companies such as General Mills and Kellogg Company are taking some of their products off of the market for now.  You can see the FDA for a list of all the recalls.  The FDA suggests for the time being to not eat this type of food that has the peanut butter in it, such as peanut butter crackers, until everything is straightened out.
