Are you going to skip the peanut butter from USA ?

News are popping up all over the world news on the peanut butter recall nd some brands familiar to me are Skippy and Kellogg (though Kellogg only sells cornflakes here in Malaysia).

The FDA has issued this :

Based on this information, and on the current state of the investigation, the FDA recommends that consumers avoid eating products that have been recalled and discard them.

Because identification of products subject to recall is continuing, the FDA urges consumers to postpone eating commercially-prepared or manufactured peanut butter-containing products and institutionally-served peanut butter until further information becomes available about which products may be affected. Efforts to specifically identify those products are ongoing.

TO AVOID EATING PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN RECALLED.

and also note :

, the FDA urges consumers to postpone eating commercially-prepared or manufactured peanut butter-containing products and institutionally-served peanut butter until further information

The FDA also has a list of recalled products from King Nut, Kellogg (Keebler) and Peanut Corporation of America and Hy-Vee Inc.

Now, I wonder when our Malaysian Health Minister will sniff out the news and inform us? Do we have these brands in our market?

    Peanut butter isn’t really an European thing. Skippy is the most common brand we can get here at the international food aisle. I still have one sitting on my shelf, unopened. Now I think I’ll just throw it away. Eek.
