Salmonella Found at Peanut Butter Plant


Source Link: www.cnn.com

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal inspectors found the strain of salmonella behind a recent food-poisoning outbreak at the ConAgra Foods Inc. plant that made the tainted peanut butter, the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.

Beyond the Sylvester, Georgia, plant, the strain also has been isolated from open jars of the company's peanut butter and some of the 370 people who have fallen ill in the outbreak, the FDA said.

Yeah, me too. In fact I just found another jar of the stuff in the back of my pantry that's headed for the trash.

It's nice to know that they think they have finally figured out what was causing it, ie dirty jars and equipment. What I find disturbing is that the recall is now going as far back as Dec '05. That's a lot of peanut butter that was made under unsanitary conditions. How many people in the past year got sick and just shrugged it off as nothing serious, I know I did. Because who would even think to look at the cause of being sick as the peanut butter.

Anyway, hadn't seen the latest update yet, so thanks.

For those of you with the contaminated jars don't throw them out. Bring them to the store. They will accept opened/used jars as well for the recall. Don't just throw your money out. let them pay for it.

This is what bothers me:


ConAgra on February 14 recalled all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter made at the Georgia plant after federal health officials linked the product to an outbreak that began in August. The recall now includes all such products made since December 2005, the FDA said.

It's been a problem for that long?

News Source


The decision to recall the products were prompted by a recent announcement by the US Embassy in Hanoi that the butter has caused 290 people in the US to be infected with salmonella, with 46 hospitalized.



Good thing I bought a different brand

Are you kidding? With all the attorneys jumping on this, SAVE your evidence.
