More Salmonella Peanut Butter Recalls Coming
FDA Finds Violations of Good Manufacturing Practices at Suspect Plant
Peanut Butter Recalls continued...
The PCA's products aren't sold directly to stores, but they were distributed
to a wide range of companies for use in products or for further distribution.
The FDA and other health officials have visited nearly 1,000 firms that
purchased products from the PCA, according to Sundlof.
You won't find "PCA" or "Peanut Corporation of America" on
product labels, Sundlof notes. If a peanut butter product isn't on the FDA's
list of recalled products, "consumers may wish to look at the company's web
site or call the toll-free number listed on most packaging" to check on its
status, says Sundlof. He cautions that the FDA hasn't verified any information
that consumers may get directly from companies about peanut butter safety.
"If consumers are in doubt about the safety of their products, they
should not eat them until the scope of the recall is clear," says
