Ohio Distributor Recalls Peanut Butter Due to Salmonella Outbreak

King Nut Companies of Solon, Ohio, issued a voluntary recall on January 10, 2009 of all peanut butter distributed under its label and manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America, of Lynchburg, Va. The company also recalled its distribution of Parnell's Pride peanut butter, which is also made by Peanut Corporation.    This occurred after the Minnesota Department of Health and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture said they found salmonella bacteria in a container of creamy peanut butter from King Nut.

This is part of the salmonella typhimurium outbreak that has sickened nearly 400 people in 42 states from Sept. 3 to Dec. 29, 2008.

More information is available from the food poisoning attorneys of Pennsylvania.
