Salmonella in Peanut Products: the Recall List and Widget

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a Peanut Product Recall Widget:

FDA Salmonella Typhimurium Outbreak 2009. Flash Player 9 is required.

I picked it up on the FDA website, on a page called, appropriately enough, "Peanut Product Recall Widget."

("...Placement of the FDA's widget is to be used only as a marker to the site and a channel for content. The use of the widget does not indicate any form of endorsement or approval from FDA or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services....")

List of Recalled Peanut Products

The FDA updated its list of recalled peanut products yesterday (February 11, 2009). It's online at "Peanut Butter and other Peanut Containing Products Recall List." At that time, there were 2,013 recalled products.

They're listed by category. What I do is use my browser's 'search' function to look for brands and products my family uses. Haven't found one yet. Good thing: since peanut butter is an affordable food for us.
