Peanut Butter Recall


Dear Dr. Brayer,
My kids love PB&J sandwiches and we all eat peanut butter. I've heard about the recall and I don't know if I should throw out all the peanut butter in the house?

Dear Marilyn Mom:
The Salmonella outbreak that has shown up in 47 states and Canada has made everyone concerned about peanut butter. The FDA has confirmed that the source of the outbreak is peanut butter and peanut paste made by the Peanut Corporation of America at its Blakely, Ga. processing plant. Because they sell to food makers, many products have been recalled including:

Clif Bars,
Kellogg Company Austin and Keebler brand, Famous Amos Peanut Butter cookies
Kroger peanut butter ice cream
General Mills Lara Bars and Jam Frakas flavor snack bars.

This is not the complete list so you should toss out any processed peanut butter snacks and don't eat any peanut butter products served in restaurants. A full list of recalled products from the FDA is here. The list is extensive!

There has been no problem with peanut butter in jars so you can continue feeding that to the kids. The healthiest peanut butter is the type you can grind yourself (Whole Foods and some natural grocery stores) or peanut butter that has no preservatives.
