Peanut Butter Recall

Peanut butter products continued to disappear from store shelves Tuesday as more grocery chains and specialty companies joined a growing list of precautionary recalls.

The flood of recalls follows a U.S. Food and Drug Administration warning over the weekend that consumers should avoid peanut butter products containing peanut butter or peanut butter paste while the widespread salmonella outbreak probe continued.

The U.S. health warning is focused on products made with peanut butter or peanut paste, like crackers or cookies or ice cream.

Jars of peanut butter on store shelves appear to be safe, the agency said.

The official toll from the outbreak across 43 states and Canada now stands at 470 people sickened, with six deaths that have been linked.
