Officials from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) today issued a product advisory after MDA’s preliminary laboratory testing indicated the presence of Salmonella bacteria in a 5-pound container of King Nut brand creamy peanut butter. Where were other State Health Departments and the CDC?
So, why no recall? FDA Class I recalls are for dangerous or defective products that predictably could cause serious health problems or death. Seems like with 400 sickened, 75 in the hospital and 1 death, we meet the definition.
Come on folks, let’s protect the public.
