Contaminated Peanut Butter – Watch What You Eat!
I always say, “YOU are the person most responsible for your personal health!” Well, you need to pay attention to what you are eating when these news stories come out!
Dirty jars suspected in peanut butter contamination
“Government scientists struggled Thursday to pinpoint the source of the first U.S. salmonella outbreak linked to peanut butter. Nearly 300 people in 39 states including Missouri have fallen ill since August, and federal health investigators said they strongly suspect Peter Pan peanut butter and certain batches of Wal-Martâ€™s Great Value house brand â€” both manufactured by ConAgra Foods Inc. Shoppers across the country were warned to throw out jars with a product code on the lid beginning with ‘2111,’ which denotes the plant where it was made. Both Gerbes and Schnucks in Columbia have taken the suspect jars off their shelves.”
