    Has anyone else seen the FDA report on the peanut facility that caused the salmonella problem? It is absolutely terrifying to think that I have eaten food containing peanut butter from that place. There is a list I have with over 400 products that are being recalled and I actually had a few things on it in my cabinets. Here is where to find the report.

    PM me with your email address if you want the list of products.

    It happens every few years like this. Meat scares, strawberry scares... It's not just a danger of a complex, pre-packaged society either. In the days of self-canning, botulism was actually much MORE prevalent than it is today, for example.

    The very old and very young, and immune-compromised most at risk as salmonella is typically a self-limited diarrhea inducing bug.

    Good luck either way!

    The report was what amazed me. I work in the meat industry and we have the USDA on site all day, every day. We run a very clean facility. If we had even one of those issues they would shut us down until the issue was taken care of and all the product at risk would be disposed of. They knowingly sent out contaminated product.

    What the h*ll won't/can't kill people nowadays...we live in a saran-wrapped society/age that has become one of the most susceptible societies to ailments...even though we have made 'leaps and 'bounds' in safeguards...yet; paradoxically not in many ways.

    The point is that their product has already caused over 500 people to get sick and caused 6 deaths because they were either too lazy or too inept to clean. I don't want to end up feeding my daughter a salmonella and jelly sandwich.

    That really sucks. Hopefully there are no long term health effects (other than the peanut butter aversion).
