Peanut butter recall

15th February 2007

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers to throw away jars of certain brands of peanut butter as they may be contaminated with Salmonella Tennessee.

The FDA have had reports of 288 cases of food-borne illness in 39 state linked to  Peter Pan peanut butter or Great Value peanut butter. The outbreak seems to have begun in
August 2006, although the companies concerned have only now been identified.

Around 20% of those sickened have been hospitalised, but there have been no deaths so far. This new scare follows other food-borne illnesses in 2006 related to spinach, tomatoes and iceberg lettuce.
