Saturday, January 17th, 2009

The outbreak of salmonella has resulted in hundreds of people in 43 states getting ill and at least six deaths.  Most deaths occurred in the elderly, who may have weakened immune systems.  Salmonella is the leading cause of food poisoning in America and exhibits symptoms such as fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping.  Peanut Corp, says its peanut butter is not sold directly to consumers, but to institutions, food service industries, and private label food companies.
