Peanut Butter Panic Leads to Cookie Crisis

Angela Hatcher of WSLS NewsChannel 10 reported:

Area Girl Scouts are having trouble selling some of their most popular cookies because of worries over peanut butter. Danville troop leader Nancy Beasley has 17 full cases of peanut butter cookies in her living room along with 9 boxes customers have returned. The bakers that make Girl Scout cookies do not get peanut butter from Conagra, the company that recalled Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter. Girl Scouts of the USA issued a statement saying their cookies aren’t contaminated.

My seven-year-old, Sydney, is a Brownie and committed to sell 500 boxes of cookies. She will be mad if this cuts into her sales.

  • What a great opportunity for Sydney to learn about PR! Girl Scouts of the USA checked with all its product suppliers, and none use peanut butter from ConAgra. Go get ’em, Sydney!
