The FDA issued a statement Saturday saying that the FDA, the CDC and the state of California briefed Trader Joe's on its investigation showing the link between the peanut butter and the illnesses on Sept. 20. The company then agreed to remove the product from store shelves.
The government did not release which states had reported illnesses, but several states have issued warnings to residents not to eat the peanut butter. According to the individual states' health departments, three cases were in Massachusetts, one was in Rhode Island and one was in North Carolina."

Try the best you can to shop locally, sustainable organic products. If pickin's are short in your area, then you may have to shop corporate. We're lucky here: a co-op and a lot of farmers markets, no need to shop Trader Schmoe or any other big chain.
