The outbreak is currently affecting 42 states, CDC officials are determining if the source of the outbreak is due to contaminated peanut butter as the King Nut companies issued a recall due to finding a five pound jar of peanut butter to be contaminated with Salmonella, although they are unsure of the particular strain of Salmonella the peanut butter was contaminated with. All I can do is advise you to avoid purchasing any peanut butter manufactured by the Peanut Corporation of America. Such as King Nut brand peanut butter(s) and other products that distribute peanut butter from the Peanut Corporation of America. The outbreak serotype is Salmonella Typhimurium just so you know. I hope the information I have provided is informative.
