The recall list is now up to 1,900 products.. 2/9/09

The top brass refused to testify in front of Congress, pleading the 5th... This does not sound like an innocent victim with accidental contamination..

So if it is NOT the rats and mice, why do federal laws and rules ALLOW rat and mice hair, feces and insect parts in peanut butter?

Why are these things normally found in peanut butter, some much more than others?

Once you grind it all up, it is hard to see, but my opinion is that this plant did have rats, mice, droppings, and cockroaches in there, plus potentially other stuff too...but ignored them.

The news report I heard today on MSNBC is that the plant KNEW it was contaminated but they wanted to make a profit, so they ground it up and sold it anyway. Why throw away tons of peanuts, just because a test came up positive?

How else would deadly salmonella not normally found in peanuts end up in peanut products?

9:05PM PST on Feb 9, 2009

It's not the rats.
How many salomella infested rats(or roaches)woul'd it it take produce an epidemic of this scale? The salmonella contamination at this plant has occured over several years. Blaming it on cockroaches abd rats is to easy. There had to be some other method of contamination for this to occur.

Is Peanut products good for Heat Patients?

It is good to get this list from you so people can be protected. I will share this with the readers of my website so they can be alerted. Quite a few diabetics consume peanut butter regularly because it is one food item that has been recommended for them to eat as safe.

My understanding is the roasting of the raw peanuts is what usually kills the salmonella. So, I would personally stay away from the raw ones right now. I love Jif and Smuckers PB and there have been no problems with either so far.

So far, this is a list of the companies that have voluntarily recalled their peanut-related products. It's very possible that the list may grow...

11:34AM PST on Feb 6, 2009

I actually heard from a former worker at the now closed plant that it was rats AND roaches getting ground up in there with the peanuts for who knows how long. I'm a little shocked at Trader Joes ending up on that list. It makes me wonder just how many other of their products are just 3rd party labeling. And why isn't Safeway and Lucky's on that list? They do all kinds of house brand, 3rd party labeling.
