Salmonella That Tainted Peanut Butter Traced to Georgia Production Plant

Article in the Washington Post -- FDA Tracks Salmonella to Georgia Peanut Butter Plant, by the Associated Press.  Here's an excerpt:

Federal inspectors found the strain of salmonella that tainted peanut butter made at the ConAgra Foods plant in Sylvester, Ga., the Food and Drug Administration said yesterday.

Government and industry officials have said the contamination may have been caused by dirty jars or equipment.

ConAgra on Feb. 14 recalled all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter made at the Sylvester plant, after federal health officials linked the products to an outbreak that began in August and sickened 370 people. The recall now includes all such products made since December 2005, the FDA said.
