The Drs: Peanut Butter Recall List – Salmonella Outbreak Cases On The Rise
Today’s The Doctors Tv show did an episode segment that all Americans should be concerned about. Products containing a peanut buse from Sunland, Inc has caused a Salmonella outbreak in 35 people spread across 19 states.
The FDA has shut down Sunland, Inc during the investigative process. Peanut butter jars are being recalled from stores like Target, Costco, and others.
Peanut Butter Recall List
Dr. Jim Sears said on today’s show that his office has been receiving phone calls about the salmonella outbreak and what brands you should be aware of. Dr. Sears said that you should go to the cdc.gov official site to view all of the peanut butter brands are on the recall list.
Laura Gieraltowski (a Foodborne Disease Epidemiologist) called in to the show talk with The Drs about the Salmonella outbreak and the peanut butter recall list. She said that the list of brands is on the rise. The most recent addition to the recall list is raw and roasted peanuts.
Throw Out Any Foods On The Recall List
Dr. Gieraltowski told the Drs and the viewers that it’s just not peanut butter and peanuts that have made the recall list. Crackers, ice cream, cookies, and candy are on the list as well. (So your not out of the woods if you don’t consume peanut butter). By the time that the recall list is out, you may already have contaminated foods on your shelf. Doctor Gieraltowski also said that if you have already partially eaten one of the foods that are on the list but you haven’t gotten sick, you should still throw out the product anyway.
