Salmonella for Valentine’s Day? Latest FDA recalls include candy.

Here's the latest on the FDA peanut and peanut butter recalls.  Thai food, candy, cookies, snack mixes, even dog food.  The FDA says, "Major national brands of jarred peanut butter" are not in this recall. Girl Scout Cookies and Reese's also say they're not implicated because their peanuts don't come from the Peanut Corporation of America.

    FatfightTV, great news.

    How brave of you to test them :)

    Goodness, so many products getting affected… well at least we can still have chocolate without the peanut butter, hehehe.

    I’m bothered that it seems like products are still showing up on the recall list. How can we feel safe consuming peanut products when they were still showing up on the list (or at least they were earlier this week)?

    Cathy,

    I know. They seem to be showing up in droves.

    Cathy,

    Yes, this is amazing to me, too. Here is one resource to help.

    American Peanut Council: “Brands NOT Affected by FDA Recall”:
    http://www.peanutsusa.com/USA/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.page&pid=262#Brands_NOT_Affected_by_FDA_Recall

    On the FDA’s FAQ page for this recall, they say, “If consumers cannot determine if their peanut products may contain peanut ingredients from PCA, FDA recommends they do not consume those products. Efforts to specifically identify products subject to the PCA recall and to continuously update consumers are ongoing.”

    The recalls are still rolling in.
