Dear Valued Client,
How the Peanut Butter Recall May Affect You.
Hundreds of peanut butter products are being recalled throughout the country due to an association with a salmonella outbreak.

Salmonella can create serious injury and in certain situations can be life-threatening. Until the outbreak is contained, we ask that you read the labels and remove any products you consume that are indicated in the recall.

The FDA has posted the list of products that have been recalled, http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/peanutbutterrecall/index.cfm. Some of these you may consume frequently (i.e. Luna Bars, Clif Bars, jarred peanut butter).

In an ideal state, our digestive tract contains a balance of good and bad bacteria, including salmonella. Adverse effects may occur when the gut becomes overpopulated with bad bacteria. Children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are particularly susceptible.

If you think that you or a family member have consumed a contaminated peanut butter product, we recommend that you contact your physician and read the CDC's explanation of symptoms of salmonella poisoning.

As a preventative, add or double your probiotic intake for the short-term. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
