Poisionous Peanut Butter?!?

Recent reports of Salmonella cases are being traced to Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butters, which have recently been recalled. Five new cases of Salmonella have been confirmed in the Metro Detroit area, totalling 288 nationwide since August.

Salmonella is usually contracted from raw or uncooked animal products. The symptoms of salmonella include: diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal cramps up to 6 to 72 hours after infection. If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms and have consumed either peanut butter, seek medical attention as soon as possible.


For more information straight from the producer.
