I have friends of mine that still been eating peanut butter crackers that they bought over three months ago. I sure wouldn't eat any kind of peanut butter products right now.

News, Since a mid-January recall of peanut butter products, many people have been squeamish about purchasing peanut butter snacks and jars of the lunchtime favorite itself, although major brands were not part of the recall.

As of February, 15,642 people in 44 states were reported to have contracted salmonella from the peanut products, according to the Web site of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

My jar of peanut butter has been open since around Christmas time and my son and I haven't gotten sick. Although I realize that jars were not involved in the recall, I don't typically buy the prepackaged peanut butter junk anyway. Just put your own PB on some real crackers and you have the same thing, only better.

I never stopped eating peanut butter...after more than 6 decades of eating it no news hype is going to stop me either...I make my own PB&J and have no fear...the only one that needs to worry would be the fool that tries to take it away from me...

The only thing I have eaten has been Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I don't normally keep a jar at home because my daughter won't eat it and it takes me a LONG time to get through an entire jar but I do love the stuff. Sometimes I just HAVE to have something sweet and nothing will do then nice soft bread with peanut butter and strawberry jam.

I do get a little paranoid when the news goes on about things like this. I have enough problems without getting VERY sick from eating something like Peanut butter or spinach.

thanks for that link!

I never stopped my peanut butter consumption, despite the recalls. still eat PB flavored granola bars, still snack on PB filled pretzels, and still eat jarred PB. I never really checked which products were being recalled, but the few processed PB items I do eat I've been assured they're okay. I do however love almond butter and use it in place of PB sometimes
