FDA statement on Peanut Butter Salmonella - Do not eat guidelines

Because identification of products subject to recall is continuing, the FDA urges consumers to postpone eating commercially-prepared or manufactured peanut butter-containing products and institutionally-served peanut butter until further information becomes available about which products may be affected. Efforts to specifically identify those products are ongoing.

My peanut butter came from Michigan. I'm not real worried. Comes in a huge tub I've already had half of.

There is a peanut roaster across the street from our factory. They ship out tanker loads of peanut butter I believe.

Well, maybe, probably. BUT, microbial contamination does not spread uniformly like a chemical contaminant does. Your peanut butter can still be contaminated, you just didn't eat the contaminated portion. OR it's OK like you think.

this thread got me concerned enough to click on the ink, but the article it linked me to was too intense looking and I didn't read it because I determined that might be worse than salmonella.

It's super easy to pump into the tankers when it is still hot. A mass of 4000 gallons of peanut butter has a lot of thermal momentum, too, so it's probably still viscous by the time they want to pump it out.

MMMMM pumping peanut butter through a 6" pipe at 100 gallons/minute. MMMMMMM

The latest peanut butter sicknesses are not generally attributed to peanut butter you buy from the store - but peanut butter sold to to businesses- they claim not sold to consumers.

However, through its investigation, FDA has determined that PCA distributed potentially contaminated product to more than 100 consignee firms, for use as an ingredient in hundreds of different products, such as cookies, crackers, cereal, candy and ice cream.
FDA initiated an inspection of PCA’s Blakely plant on January 9 shortly after learning that this firm might be linked to the ongoing Salmonella outbreak. FDA finished its inspection on January 27.

Yes, but that's the peanut butter used in many off the shelf products, like Clif Bars for example.

My peanut butter is 5 years old. Is it covered by the salmonella outbreak?

But rest assured, Girl Scout cookies are not affected by the salmanella outbreak so I bought an armload from a co-worker. I can go through a whole box of Do-Si-Dos at one time.

Exactly - so you don't have to avoid peanut butter in a jar - avoid anything with peanut butter. Unless puking your guts up and dieing is your thing. Though personally I'm swearing off of peanut butter pretty hard core.
