Concerns about salmonella contamination have emerged at another Peanut Corporation of America plant, CNN is reporting.
The company’s plant in Plainview, Texas, has been shut down after testing by state health officials showed some peanut products may be tainted.
A salmonella outbreak linked to a Georgia plant has sickened more than 600 people in 44 states, including four in Oklahoma, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Eight people have died.
More than 2000 peanut butter products have been recalled because of safety concerns.
So far, major brands of jarred peanut butter have not been affected, but countless other foods are being yanked off store shelves.
