We don’t buy a lot of processed foods, so I wasn’t worried about the major outbreak of salmonella that has been traced to contaminated peanut butter.
Then I glanced down the full list of recalled items, which Jill Richardson posted at La Vida Locavore. It includes lots of popular brand-name crackers, cookies, and other foods (such as Wal-Mart, Keebler and Hy-Vee).
There are even some organics on the list, like certain types of Clif bars (which we have in our cupboard).
Some PetSmart dog biscuits have been recalled too.
Note: the FDA says jars of peanut butter are not affected. This recall applies to other forms of processed food made with peanut butter.
Do not take chances with salmonella.
