Pretty Sad when Peanut Butter is making folks sick, I don't know how many Children are afflicted with this round of Salmonella, but I would suspect a few as mostly children eat alot of peanut butter. More than 400 people are sick in 42 States, before they released the information about the EFFECTED peanut butter. ( Please note that Peanut butter is not a normal contaminated food). Salmonella can be dangerous for the elderly, young, and immune compromised.It causes GI Distress, nausea, vomiting,and cramping and fevers. If Anyone has these symptoms they do need to tell the doctor, especially if they consumed Peanut Butter. Please note that this Illness needs medical treatment with antibiotics and possibley fluids, it will not pass like a flu. Do read more here about this illness.
