Salmonella and Peanut Butter

J at | Health and Fitness | Monday, January 19th, 2009

It’s all over the local radios. The DOH is urging people to avoid eating peanut butter products from the United States because of recent news reports of a salmonella outbreak. In Salmonella-linked recalls widen as government advises people not to eat peanut butter products, the FDA says that people should postpone eating peanut butter products.

Oh no… I wonder how long I’ll have to wait before I can enjoy products like REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups. Woe is me. Just to be clear, though, we’re not saying that particular product is contaminated. All we’re focused on is while the FDA is still investigating the matter, let us simply postpone our peanut butter binge. :-)

Now if you’ve eaten any product containing pbut, and you experience fever or abdominal cramps between 12 to 72 hours from the time you ate, then it would be best to see a health care professional to assess if you are showing signs of salmonella infection.

In the meantime, let’s all take in lots of fluids and pray for patience as we wait for more information about this outbreak.
