Practicing safe peanut butter with the Girl Scouts


Despite the nationwide salmonella outbreak linked to peanut butter, Girl Scout cookies are safe! So says the PiPress and so say the Girl Scouts, who will be happy to direct you to the nearest cookie-seller. (Girl Scout cookie sellers hit the streets last weekend, so it’s time to get your order in!) Other cookies are not so lucky. Cub Foods has recalled their own peanut butter cookies, reports MPR, and all products containing peanut butter, as well as industrial-pack peanut butter and peanut paste remain under suspicion. The bright spot? Peanut butter in retail-size jars seems to be cleared of suspicion. So, if you’re dying for peanut butter cookies, you can always bake your own.
