FDA Peanut Butter Product Recall...
I just read how our esteemed Melissa Tanner may have fallen victim to the recent salmonella outbreak associated to certain peanut butter, peanut paste and peanut ingredients in common food products.
In an effort to help our masses, I have pasted below a live link to the official US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) web page that lists all peanut product recalls and also has a convenient search feature. The list is quite comprehensive and includes products you may not suspect like cake, cookies, ice cream, etc.
The main FDA information page on the salmonella outbreak contains wide ranging information on topics such as reporting a complaint, news updates, as well as information on salmonella itself and can be found here: http://www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/salmonellatyph.html
Please take a moment to check if any peanut related food items in your possession are on the recall list - it could save you unnecessary illness.
