And the peanut butter plot thickens. The Food and Drug Administration recently told consumers, retailers, and manufacturers to throw away all peanut butter products that came from the Georgia plant during the past two years. The announcement affects products processed at the Peanut Corporation of America, the company under fire for knowingly distributing salmonella-tainted products. "We have been devastated by this, and we have been working around the clock with the FDA to ensure any potentially unsafe products are removed from the market immediately," said president Stewart Parnell. Eight people have died and 500 have become ill because of the violent strain.
