Peanut Butter Outbreak is Growing!

In case you guys didn't know it yet, there is a salmonella outbreak again and the number of affected people are growing. It is now estimated about 49 both in here and Canada. If you guys love peanut butter, this is just a reminder to choose food product that doesn't contain peanuts especially those that were recalled by FDA.
