Couldn't find what you looking for?


Although every American has heard about the recent recall of peanut products, many don’t realize that cakes, snack bars, brownies, cookies and ice cream may also be contaminated with salmonella. Of the 93 % of Americans in the survey who knew of recent recalls, fewer than half knew that some snack bars, cakes, brownies and cookies had been recalled.

Only about one-quarter of those surveyed knew that some ice cream brands had been recalled, and less than one-quarter knew plain jars or cans of dry-roasted peanuts had been recalled.

If you don’t look at the ingredients, it is hard to figure out that some products contain peanuts because it only says chocolate on the covers. Many people just go around eating protein bars and other snacks without even checking the list of ingredients or the Food and Drug Administration’s list of recalled products.

The survey also found that one in four of those people who are aware of the recent recalls mistakenly believe that major national brands of peanut butter are contaminated. Major national brands are safe and can be consumed. Since peanut butter is an awfully good food at low cost, people shouldn’t be throwing it out at these economically difficult times.

The survey of a nationally representative sample of 1,283 adults found that more than six in ten Americans said they have only “some” or “very little” confidence that food manufacturers and government inspections systems could keep food safe.


I did not know until now that there is a list of FDA recalled products. Thanks for the info.
