More information on the salmonella outbreak connected to peanuts posted on March 18, 2009.

The FDA is continuing to recall products containing peanuts from plants owned by Peanut Corporation of America. Over 2100 products have been recalled that either contain peanuts or were processed on lines that also processed peanuts.

From msnbc.com: About half of the new cases of confirmed salmonella infection continue to show up in people who ate Austin or Keebler peanut butter crackers manufactured by the Kellogg Co., according to officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Ed. note: Recalled products now include ice creams containing peanuts and spedialty peanut butters and "grind your own" peanut butters.
FDA has a searchable database of recalled products at www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/peanutbutterrecall/index.cfm. The list is updated frequently.
A list produced by the American Peanut council of products that contain peanuts that are not affected by the recall can be found at www.peanutsusa.com/USA/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.page&pid=262#Brands_NOT_Affected_by_FDA_Recall.
