Peanut Butter – Second Strike

Health officials are urging 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 Sunday. It was distributed to food-service providers and not sold directly to consumers.

King Nut has challenged the link to its peanut butter, saying that it could not have been the source of a nationwide outbreak because it only does business in seven states.
