Since the end of last September, peanut butter has been in the midst of a crisis in the United States. The reason is an outbreak of salmonella contamination that has caused the poisoning of numerous people across the country, many of them children. I received the initial announcement of the recall through the comment on the Facebook wall of an alarmed vegetarian friend, who was doubly affected, one because peanut butter was one of its main sources of protein and two because one of the your favorite supermarkets.
The first results of the studies determined that the Valencia Creamy Salted brand, from the Trader Joe's market, appeared to be peanut butter that contained the dangerous bacteria. Since then, according to data published on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35 cases have already been reported in 19 states of the nation. The contaminated peanut is known to come from the company Sunland, Inc, but the list of brands involved in the crisis and forced to withdraw their products from the market has been extended to 14. For its part, the United States Food and Drug Administration United has published a list of products that have been recalled. To see a list of these products and brands, visit the FDA site.
A few days ago it was announced that the problem officially includes the raw and roasted peanuts that have been processed at the Sunland, Inc. facilities.
How to avoid eating contaminated peanuts
1. Check the lists of "safe" products and do not buy those that are blacklisted.
2. Buy peanut butter made in the market, with peanuts that do not come from contaminated plants, or prepare the butter yourself at home.
3. Give up peanut butter for a while, and try alternative spread products, such as almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or pumpkin butters and other vegetables.
