Here We Go Again?

Officials in Colorado claim to have tied some of their salmonella cases to PCA's Texas plant, reports the Oregonian.

The source was "grind it yourself" peanut butter from a health food store.

(Don't get me started on these in-store grinders, but if a food company of Kellogg's sophistication has a hard time checking up on suppliers, imagine how good your local health food store is about checking up on theirs.  The same goes, in my mind, for all the bulk bins.  Not to mention the "Who used this last?" issue.  I say yuck.)

At least everybody who uses peanuts has their supplier lists already on their desks, so the cascade of downstream recalls will go faster.
