FDA Says Peanut Butter May Be Classified as High-Risk Food

The AP (2/12) reported that Dr. Stephen Sundlof, the head of the FDA’s food safety center, said that following the “deadly salmonella outbreak,” the government may single out peanut butter for “special attention.” While currently inspectors collect samples of peanut butter for bacterial testing only if officials suspect a problem, they would start doing so “whenever they go into a facility.” Sundlof also said that “the government is weighing whether to classify peanut butter as a high-risk food,” which would mean “producers would be required to follow written food safety plans to prevent contamination.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
