Salmonella tainted peanut butter strikes again and this time it is in packets of peanut butter in military Meal-Ready-To-Eat (MRE) packages that FEMA passed out to victims of Hurricane Ike in Texas and now the ice storms in Kentucky and Arkansas.
MREs already distributed in Kentucky were being recalled and those in Arkansas have not been passed out yet according to news sources. Those with the meals are being advised to throw out the peanut butter packets included. The remainder of the meal is safe to eat.
