Peanut Butter

Who can forget the Great Peanut Butter Recall of 2012?

Hundreds of products around the nation were recalled after 42 people in 20 states were sickened from peanut butter tainted with Salmonella. All products originated from a processing plant in New Mexico.

In 2008 and 2009, more than 700 people got sick, again after eating peanut butter contaminated with Salmonella. This type of contamination occurs during processing so the best consumers can do to protect themselves is to watch closely for recall notices. Or consider shopping at retailers who notify you if you buy a product that is later subject to a recall, Klein says.
