I received a call from CostCo yesterday telling me not to eat the peanut butter bars in my Cliff variety pack, and to return them for a refund/exchange.

I purchased them 3 weeks ago. Thank goodness I'd only eaten one, a chocolate chip.

That's why I eat fresh ground peanut butter (ground by me) from the local health food store and take Hammer Gel on my rides.

The 32 oz Extra Crunchy jar in the kitchen cabinet must be there when I get home from work so I can have my daily "peanut butter lollypop spoon." I told my wife to leave it be, and to throw it out only after she removes the tablespoon from my stiff lifeless fingers.

Yeah, I have 2 mojo pbj's that fall into the recall. What a pain in the butt. Should I just throw $5 in the street or waste 2 hours of my time trying to get a refund?

True that. Extra crunchy is JET fuel.

Instead of giving up peanut butter, I gave up watching the news. Actually, although I read the news some, I haven't watched a TV news broadcast in this century. I highly recommend it.

Never did like those new fangled american imports. Never even had peanuts in my youth when rationing was on just after the war- let alone peanut butter.

Have never liked Peanut butter- in any shape or form- But Bovril- or occasionally Marmite- on toast is part of the Staple diet in the UK.

I had 2 PB Clif Bars in the cupboard and just tossed 'em -- hardly worth the trouble to return them to get a refund.

I have a box of Peanut butter chocolate chip Bonk Breakers of which I've eaten 2. I sure hope they're okay.

I eat a tablespoon (or so) of crunchy peanut butter at around 11pm about 3 times a week.
