City Responds To Recalled Peanut Butter

The City of Amarillo is asking for your help to make sure the recalled peanut butter gets tossed out.
   NewsChannel 10's Felicia Lafuente has more on the city's effort. 
   Throw it away!
  That's the message the city is sending out to you.
     "The recall is very isolated to two particular brands of peanut butter and do not mention any products that contain it. It's a very specific recall so those are not implicated at this time," says Deree Duke, Director of Environmental Health.
   Those two brands, Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter with the 2-1-1-1 number on the lid. 
   Items like these crackers, made by great value, are still ok.
   Spot checks have been made at local stores to make sure these items are pulled off the shelves.
   The city is also looking into all past salmonella cases to see if they are connected to the recalled peanut butter brands.
  "Locally, we're taking a look at one that may be connected, we don't have any other information on it.in the last 4-5 months, taken look at the salmonella and we have not linked any to the peanut butter," says Duke.
   So again, if you have jars of Great Value or Peter Pan peanut butter with the number 2-1-1-1 on the lid, throw it in the trash right now!
