The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed a link between peanut butter and a salmonella outbreak that has sickened more than 400 people in 43 states.
Health officials are telling nursing homes, hospitals, schools and restaurants to throw away containers of peanut butter that have been linked to the 43-state salmonella outbreak. The peanut butter, manufactured by Lynchburg-based Peanut Corp. of America and distributed by King Nut Cos. of Solon, Ohio, was recalled by the distributor. It was distributed to food-service providers and not sold directly to consumers.
Minnesota officials found a match this weekend between samples from an open King Nut container and the strain of salmonella bacteria that has made people sick nationwide. And a Minnesota health department spokesman said that all of the patients in that state had consumed peanut butter, with most eating the same brand.
