S. Korea recalls U.S. peanut butter linked to salmonella

Feb 26, 2007 | Yonhap

A South Korean food watchdog said Monday it is recalling imported American peanut butter after it was linked to an outbreak of salmonella food poisoning in the U.S.

The Korea Food and Drug Administration said it has banned the sale of peanut butter products made by ConAgra Foods Inc., a U.S. manufacturer, and ordered their immediate recall.

Peter Pan, one of two brands confirmed to be infected with salmonella, was imported to South Korea in December last year, and some of the peanut butter is believed to be currently in circulation, it said.

Last week, ConAgra recalled its Peter Pan and Great Value brands after U.S. health officials linked the products to a salmonella outbreak.

The salmonella outbreak caused 329 people to fall ill, and 51 of them were sent to hospitals, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Symptoms of illness caused by salmonella include fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. Salmonella can cause life-threatening infections if it invades the bloodstreams of people with weakened immune systems.

China's health officials have also warned consumers against eating any imported U.S. peanut butter carrying the Peter Pan or Great Value brands.
