I guess everyone is hearing about the salmonella outbreak in the states which was discovered in peanut butter and other products that contain peanut butter.This is really serious because several cases were reported not to mention that some people are dying too.More peanut butter products have been recalled in the United States after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned consumers not to eat anything made with peanut butter because of a salmonella outbreak.
Federal health officials on Saturday urged consumers to avoid eating cookies, cakes, ice cream and other foods that contain peanut butter until the authorities can learn more about a deadly outbreak of salmonella contamination. So far, more than 470 people have gotten sick in 43 states, and at least 90 have to be hospitalized. At least six deaths are being blamed on the outbreak. Salmonella is a bacteria and the most common source of food poisoning in the U.S., causing diarrhea, cramping and fever. Even Kelloggs announced it is recalling as a precaution about 33,000 cases of cookies, and 7 million cases of crackers from grocery shelves.
So all peanut butter lovers including myself will be deprived for a shortwhile till this issue is cleared…:(
