Five deaths have now been linked to an outbreak of Salmonella food poisoning linked to peanut butter, but the strain involved is not particularly virulent, U.S. health officials said on Friday.Yes!
Tauxe and other officials confirmed that the outbreak could be linked to peanut butter and peanut paste from Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), which has voluntarily recalled peanut butter produced in its Blakely, Georgia, processing facility.
"Salmonella and other bacteria, if they are introduced into peanut butter ... they are not in any way destroyed," Tauxe said.
"They don't continue to grow in the peanut butter but they similarly are not killed in the peanut butter. So they sit there in a dormant state."
An outbreak of salmonella was linked to Peter Pan brand peanut butter in 2007. ConAgra Foods Inc(CAG.N) closed a Georgia plant after more than 300 people became ill.
