Don't Eat the Peanuts!

The FDA has advised Americans to "postpone" consuming specific products containing peanut butter until the source of a salmonella outbreak has been confirmed. So far, 474 people have been sickened and six have died. "While snack products are potentially contaminated, supermarket peanut butter is not," USA Today reports. "It appears that the only peanut butter linked to the outbreak was an institutional brand sold in five- to 50-pound tubs to schools, hospitals and nursing homes under the King Nut and Parnell's Pride label."
