Salmonella Equals No More PB&J

Brand names Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter have been recalled for a salmonella outbreak. Though reports say that no actual contamination with salmonella have been found in any of the peanut butter thus far, the company has recalled the product because of a statistical link between the salmonella outbreak and the peanut butter in question. Since the recall has been announced, all of these products with this brand name have been removed from the shelves. “It was reported that about 85 percent of those known to be infected in the outbreak reported eating peanut butter. According to a DHHS press release, most people recover from a salmonella infection without medical attention, but the information indicated anyone experiencing illness after consuming the recalled peanut butter may want to seek medical care.
