453 Illnesses, 5 Deaths Connected To Tainted Peanut Butter

The peanut butter recalls just keep on coming — as an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened 453 people and contributed to 5 deaths in 43 states continues.

Most recently Clif Bars and Luna Bars that contain peanut butter have been recalled, as well as Kroger peanut butter ice cream, ZonePerfect peanut butter bars, and Meijer peanut butter crackers.

To see a full list of the affected peanutty treats, click on over to the FDA.

The FDA also has a searchable database of contaminated peanut items.

Also, it should be noted that regular jars of peanut butter are not affected, so if you stopped eating your peanut butter and toast in horror as you read this post, you can go back to it. It’s fine.
