FEMA food kits may contain tainted peanut butter.


www.cnn.com

(CNN) -- Food kits recently distributed as part of a disaster relief effort in Kentucky and Arkansas may contain peanut butter contaminated with salmonella linked to a nationwide outbreak, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Wednesday.

Ok, so this outbreak is not exactly breaking news.. but anything containing 'FEMA' raises suspicion to me, call me paranoid but it does. "I love my country but my government scares the hell out of me". Thoughts?

don't eat the yellow snow, and don't eat the FEMA peanut butter. Seriously, as much as I hate FEMA, this can't be blamed on them. Meals of this sort would probably be prepared well in advance, similar to MRE's.
Living through this ice storm in Arkansas, (and it's not the first one I've been through), taught me that we have become way to complacent. We have become spoiled by TV, electricty, computers, and the internet.
I purchased a generator Tuesday, even though I had power back on Friday evening.
I live in an all electric home, something I was against, but when Mama speaks, I have learned to listen. We are compiling a list of things we need to survive any disaster, winter or summer. including non-perishable food items.
There is a weird irony in this, because we had been discussing, since early fall, emergency preperation for winter, including a generator, hot plates, propane heaters, etc. But we just kept putting it off.
No longer. Every payday we will purchase items that will help us survive and keep in touch with the world.

Yeah, on this one FEMA gets a pass. I sincerely believe the owner and managers at that peanut plant should have criminal charges brought against them and civil suits for defamation and injury should be brought against them by every company/agency/organization that has been affected. It's ridiculous when my wife and I had to go through the pantry on Sunday and throw away all of our kids' peanut butter crackers and cookies. Hell, try explaining to a toddler that's been asking for "pea-buh quackaws" all week why he still can't have any without said toddler making you feel like he thinks he's being punished for some reason.

I read this in the news this morning too and was going to make a post if someone hadn't done so already.

I also saw on the news today that 200,000 or so people in the state of Kentucky are still without power, and what's worrisome is that some of those people might not have gotten the word yet to not eat the peanut butter that's in their FEMA food kit.

Hopefully the shelters have gotten the word, but what about the folks who are still in their homes and without access to communication and/or news? Let's hope they at least have a battery operated radio they're listening to and will hear this news before they eat the peanut butter.

I watched a hearing on capitol hill on cnn.com with the plant that sold the peanutbutter and they were getting "reemed!" I think it is their mistake. I, by in no means, am defending FEMA but I think it is the Georgia based companys' falt and they should PAY!
