Peanut Butter Recalled Because Of Possible Salmonella Outbreak

    You know what the worst news was today?

    Peanut butter getting pulled from the shelves in some states because of a suspected salmonella outbreak in some 39 states! WTF!

   Of all brands it would have to be my favorite one, Peter Pan. Salmonella from peanut butter has got to be a first.

    I'll blame this on Bush also when I can find a way to make it sound good.

Four out of 15 possible cases in North Carolina are in the Charlotte region, one each in Mecklenburg, Union, Iredell and Catawba counties, according to the N.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. The cases are scattered across the state, and no one has died, the agency said. The age range of patients ranged from 1 to 76 years old.

Matthews-based Harris Teeter pulled all Peter Pan peanut butter products from its shelves until further notice because of a federal investigation of possible salmonella contamination, spokeswoman Jennifer Panetta said. The warning covers Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter jars with the product code on the lid beginning with the numbers "2111."

Great Value is the house brand for Wal-Mart.
