Restaurants Lose Money from Salmonella Scare

Wildflour Café on Fourth Street has lost more than $50 and a batch of fresh brownies, due to the salmonella scare involving peanut butter. Right after Robinson, the owner, made a batch of peanut butter fudge brownies with Peter Pan spread he had to throw them out. "We threw them all out," Robison laments. Trashed were about 60 brownies, which sell for $2.25 each. "It's a chunk of change," he said. On Friday, a week after ConAgra, based in Omaha, Nebraska, recalled peanut butter from its Georgia plant after a salmonella outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the presence of the dangerous germ. “No deaths have been confirmed, although a Pennsylvania family filed a lawsuit Wednesday claiming a relative died from eating tainted peanut butter.”
