Salmonella on Peanut Butter

Please beware of peanut butter. If you have been using peanut butter you better avoid and stop using it for your own safety and for your kids safety. Salmonella strikes again and this time you can get it from peanut butter. Most of products that has peanut butter to it had been recalled. Some of this products are peanut butter crackers, peanut butter paste and most likely products that contain peanut butter. There have been deaths reported because of salmonella. Please read here for that full report.

My hubby stop using peanut butter last Tuesday because he felt some pain on his stomach. He had diarrhea and a sharp pain on his stomach. He likes using peanut butter to make his favorite shake but he finally stopped using it. So parents please be cautious. It is better to be safe than sorry.
