@Region Philbis,
I heard that but since I had already opened the jar of Skippy and I didn't get sick and the dog didn't get sick, I'm probably safe.

How much labour time and effort would amazon have to put into researching and issuing that statement?

obviously its in Amazons interest to issue the notices but its hardly their fault they have to do so.

@Region Philbis,
I saw that announced on one of the 24/7 blabber networks a few days ago. Was going to post something about it here and forgot to do so. Thanks.

I wonder what generic/store brands they also produce and whether there is a concern with those too.

@shewolfnm,
And I'll also be ingesting more fat and calories than I have the room for.

I've had freshly made peanut butter, and it's lovely.

I still need to lose weight, so the spread is what I eat.

Assuming it doesn't have salmonella in it. Gaaack!

We use peanut butter to give our dog his allergy pill. He likes Jif. Woof.
