Peanut Butter Products Recall


I can imagine everyone with kids and peanut butter lovers are all wondering if this Salmonella Typhimurium Outbreak is going to be put to rest soon. Good news is the source has been identified bad news is the recalls continue. PetSmart is even recalling dog biscuits... I thought dogs could eat anything.

“WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration confirmed yesterday that the Blakely, Ga., facility owned and operated by Peanut Corporation of America is at the center of the Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak that has sickened hundreds and been linked to at least five deaths. The agency said testing by a Connecticut Department of Health laboratory that identified the pathogen in an unopened container of King Nut peanut butter which was manufactured at the plant and the epidemiological investigation being conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention led F.D.A. to confirm the Blakely plant as the source.” Source:, January 22, 2009
