Peanut Butter Products Recalled, Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

By Admin on January 12, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

A nationwide outbreak of salmonella has sickened at least 400 people in 43 states, and a number of peanut butter products linked to the same salmonella strain have been recalled.

The reported infections of Salmonella serotype Typhimurium began between September 3 and December 31, 2008, with most illnesses beginning after October 1st, and 18 percent of reported cases requiring hospitalization, according to a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Press Release being periodically updated. The CDC, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and state health officials are working to pinpoint the exact source of the salmonella outbreak. The FDA website has a list and searchable database of recalled peanut butter products, so that consumers can keep track of impacted products.
