The Peanut Butter "Situation"

There has been so much--understandably--in the news lately about salmonella and the peanut butter recall. I remember several weeks ago the debate on the Juggle on wsj.com concerned peanut butter bans in schools. What a swell of emotions! Take a look at yesterday's topic and the comments: Coping with the Peanut Butter Salmonella Scare. The focus gradually shifts from the suggested topic, the salmonella/peanut butter recall, to food allergies and peanut butter bans, following the comment of one "food allergy mom".

I feel for the families and people the salmonella scare impacts. Even though we don't eat peanut butter or foods containing peanuts, I still feel affected by it. Remember the recent Chicago Tribune investigation about labeling food allergens and recalls? Aren't we all victims of a food inspection and food safety system that isn't working? Let's hope things improve, and soon.
