Salmonella outbreak in peanut butter and ice cream?

Have you heard about the outbreak of salmonella virus in peanut butter products and certain ice creams? Kellog found it in their peanut butter crackers, Peter Pan peanut butter is also infected, Meijer stores carry contaminated products, and Perry's Ice Cream, along with other ice creams are infected. Little Debbie recalled its peanut butter crackers over fear of contamination. At least 470 others in 43 states have gotten sick. At least 90 people have been hospitalized. Some people have died. Just wanted to spread the news.

"The government on Saturday had advised consumers to avoid eating cookies, cakes, ice cream and other foods containing peanut butter until health officials learn more about the contamination."

    Stick to all natural, organic, non-GMO foods, and your risk of encountering contaminated food will be much, much lower.
