Salmonella-Tainted Product Recalled In 60 Countries

Salmonella in peanut butter is not just a nation-wide problem it is a world-wide problem. The tainted peanut butter has not only been sold here but in more than 60 other countries. In the U.S., the tainted peanut butter has been blamed for sickening 329 people in 41 states since August. During the weekend, China announced a recall of the peanut butter. The official Xinhua news agency said three batches of the two brands were imported between September and January, totaling 742 cases. The agency said at least 156 cases already had been sold in Beijing, and even though the lids had the suspect code, no one had reported being sickened by the peanut butter.
