    Default Trader Joe's peanut butter salmonella


    Trader Joe's peanut butter recalled for salmonella risk

    By JoNel Aleccia, NBC News

    Federal health officials are warning consumers not to eat Trader Joe's
    Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter after the product was linked to
    salmonella infections that have sickened 29 people in 18 states.

    It is especially important that children under age 5, elderly adults
    and people with weak immune systems avoid the product, which has been
    possibly linked to an outbreak of salmonella Bredeney, according to
    the Food and Drug Administration.

    Trader Joe's has pulled the product from store shelves nationwide and
    posted an advisory on the company's web page. The peanut butter, which
    has a stock keeping unit or SKU of 97111, should be returned to any
    Trader Joe's store for a full refund.

    FDA officials said they are working with the Centers for Disease
    Control and Prevention and local and state health officials across the
    country to investigate what the agency called "a fast-moving outbreak"
    in a statement issued Saturday.

    "FDA's top priority is protecting consumers and ensuring the safety of
    our food supply," the agency said.

    People infected with salmonella typically develop diarrhea, fever and
    abdominal cramps within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food.
    The illness typically lasts between four to seven days and most people
    recover without treatment. However, some people, particularly the very
    young, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, may
    become very ill and require hospitalization. Children are the most
    likely to get salmonella infections.

    Anyone who shows signs of infection after eating Trader Joe's Valencia
    Creamy Salted Peanut Butter should contact a health provider.

    Peanut butter has been the cause of widespread outbreaks of foodborne
    illness in recent years. In 2008, 714 people in 46 states were
    sickened by salmonella Typhimurium found in peanut butter crackers and
    other products. In 2007, 425 people in 44 states were sickened by
    salmonella Typhimurium found in Peter Pan and Great Value peanut
    butter.

    Lovely. I just bought some Artisana. I don't normally buy that brand but I
    wanted crunchy and that was the only smallish sized jar of crunchy that
    Target carried. Mayhaps I will hang onto it for a lil while to make sure
    that it is safe.
