There were reports of peanut butter having salmonella before. I watched them on the television, I heard them on the radio, I even heard them from grocery stores and even inside our home. It wasn’t a big deal for me though I am not a fan of peanut butters. It just struck me to post this article due to, one of our own products made here from the Philippines contained salmonella. Becareful on what you eat.
