FEMA: Tainted Peanut Butter

FEMA has ordered a recall of tainted peanut butter packs used for future storm victims. Once re-labeled, they will be re-shipped to unwitting desperate families.

ATLANTA – The Federal Emergency Management Agency says some emergency meal kits given to storm victims in Kentucky and Arkansas may contain recalled peanut butter.

FEMA says the kits may contain packets of peanut butter that are part of a national recall over possible salmonella contamination.

The agency said in a statement Wednesday that the kits were manufactured by Red Cloud Food Services Inc. of South Elgin, Ill., under the Headstone label.

The agency says people who have received meal kits should inspect them and immediately dispose of any peanut butter packets. "If you're reading this, you didn't eat any," said an anonymous source.


More than 1,000 items have been recalled in the salmonella outbreak that has sickened at least 550 people, eight of whom have died. A Blakely, Ga., peanut-processing plant is being blamed, but they have enlisted high powered firms to delay justice, which are tax write-offs, so that no adverse financial effects are expected by the company.
