Peanut Butter Recall
For those of you that love peanut butter as a snack you must read this article.
The Food Standards Agency is warning consumers not to eat certain peanut butter and peanut-based products which have been imported from the US becuase of possible contamination with Salmonella.
Salmonella is a bacterium that causes food poisoning.
The strain of salmonella called Salmonella Bredeney in the US has been linked to peanut butter produced by a company called Sunland Inc.
As a result, the manufacturer is recalling a wide range of peanut butter and peanut-based products. Other products containing nuts and seeds are also being recalled.
It is not thought that these products are on sale in the major supermarkets in the UK, but they may have been bought on the internet or from specialist shops that import American food products.
The Foods Standards Agency has asked local authorities to check businesses in their areas that may have imported or sold the affected products and to remove any remaining products from sale.
If consumers have a product made by Sunland Inc they should check the batch code against the list on US FDA site provided on the top right of The Food Standards Agency website.
If you know where you purchase any of these products, please do let us know, at SnackCheck.
