There're So Many Foods!

By January 28, 2009

Follow me on:

The list of recalled peanut butter products has gotten unmanageably large. To help you figure out if you have a recalled product, the FDA has created a searchable database.

So far, over 500 people have gotten Salmonella poisoning from this outbreak. Cases are reported in 43 states. The last confirmed illness began on January 8, 2009. There's a lag time in reporting, and not every case is reported, so stay tuned. There may be more cases coming.

The CDC and the FDA are advising you not to eat anything that comes with peanut butter in it. They're also advising not to eat peanut butter from restaurants or cafeterias. Regular jars of peanut butter sold on supermarket shelves should be OK to eat.
