Randy warned me not to eat these Austin peanut butter crackers from the World of Wonder snack bucket or “You will die!” At first I thought he really just wanted the last package for himself until he followed up by saying that there had been a recent salmonella outbreak! I found the crackers in the second picture above on his desk. He had almost eaten them, but remembered about the outbreak just in time.
Obviously, I do live in my own little Hollywood bubble, where news reports are about what makes President Obama’s BlackBerry the best instead of, like, political stuff. But, apparently, this recent salmonella outbreak has affected 488 people in 43 states as of 9PM on January 22, according to the CDC. Dog biscuits from PetSmart have been recalled, as well as these Austin crackers with peanut butter. FORTUNATELY, all Girl Scout cookies are safe. Needless to say, all the Austin peanut butter crackers have been removed from the office. So, for those of you like me, who only read the blogs and rarely keep up with the “real” news, I want you to know DON’T EAT PEANUT BUTTER!
OMG! I was totally just eating Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch while writing this post! I have more research to do!
