Pulling for Peanuts

Mar 09, 2009
Hello,
 
I am not a farmer, but I watch your program every Sunday morning and love it.  I was a little disturbed by the report about peanuts.  I love peanut butter and have not stopped buying it since the scare.  I was on a medication for a while that made peanut butter taste terrible to me.  I was so upset.  When I was able to eat it again, you can be sure that I started eating it again. 
 
My logic is, I believe that the government has recalled all the products that were contaminated.  I believe that every peanut product in the stores is safe.   With this contamination scare, I believe that the peanut products in the stores are so safe that there can be no doubt about it.  I say go get that peanut butter and make cookies, sandwiches, whatever.  Keep buying.  Support our farmers.
Thank you for allowing me to comment.

You can get a list of all peanut products recalled at the FDA website.

you can also go to nationalpeanutboard.org or to the American Peanut Council, peanutsusa.com to get any information you need concerning the recall.

I am still afraid of buying peanut butter because there are still reports coming out every day about new peanut products being recalled. I want to see a list of peanut products that an independent source has verified as safe. Until then, I will wait like everyone else is doing.
