The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added even more products to a massive recall connected to a rash of personal injury illnesses that have been caused by salmonella-tainted peanut butter.
It has been noted that the peanut butter in the jar is safe for consumption, but many other products such as cookies, crackers, and even dog treats that contain peanut butter could be at risk.
The news has left store owners and health inspectors scrambling to keep up with an ever-growing recall list.
So far there have been eight deaths and more than 500 illnesses across the U.S. attributed to the salmonella outbreak.
Stores have been frantically attempting to be aware of and remove any products involved in the recall, and the list just grew longer.
A peanut butter plant in Georgia has been identified as the source of the salmonella outbreak. Officials from the FDA now say that on multiple occasions, some of the plant’s products tested positive for salmonella, but were shipped anyway because a second test came back negative, forcing the FDA to expand the recall by two years.
