Salmonella found in peanut butter

February 25, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Tests have confirmed that peanut butter made from peanuts processed at a Texas plant contains the same strain of salmonella blamed for sickening hundreds in a national outbreak, federal officials said.

The test results offer new evidence that the outbreak attributed to a peanut plant in Georgia may have more than one source. Both the Texas and Georgia plants were operated by Peanut Corp. of America. The outbreak prompted one of the largest food recalls in U.S. history and may have contributed to nine deaths.
