More peanut butter products are being yanked off store shelves as health officials nationwide continue to delve into a salmonella outbreak that has sickened hundreds of people, including two in Oklahoma.
Not even your dog is safe.
Companies are pulling a wide range of products off the market over concerns they may contain peanut butter or peanut paste manufactured by the Peanut Corporation of America, whose Georgia plant has become the focus of the ongoing investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The full list of recalled products is available here.
The Peanut Corporation of America’s products are distributed to food manufacturers to be used as an ingredient in many commercially produced products including cakes, cookies, crackers, candies, cereal and ice cream, according to the FDA. PCA peanut butter also is distributed to and institutionally served in such settings as long-term care facilities and cafeterias.
Health officials in Oklahoma have not been able to determine how two young people in northeast Oklahoma came in contact with the outbreak strain of salmonella. Both had multiple peanut butter-related product exposures, officials said Tuesday afternoon.
