Beware peanut butter

At least 453 people nationwide have gotten sick from salmonella-tainted peanut butter and five have died, according to Bloomberg.com. The offending peanut butter was made in Georgia, apparently:

The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration are focusing their investigation on a Blakely, Georgia, plant where closely held Peanut Corp. of America makes peanut butter and peanut paste. Kellogg Co. and King Nut Cos. halted sales of products made from Peanut Corp. ingredients this week. Officials urged 32 companies supplied by Peanut Corp. to take similar precautions.
