Nearly 200 Minnesota Schools on Alert for Salmonella in Peanuts

ST. PAUL, Minn.
Published: February 2, 2009

Nearly 200 Minnesota schools are on alert after a Georgia plant under federal investigation for selling contaminated products sent cans of peanuts to the school districts a year ago. Due to recent national reports of salmonella in peanut products, the schools are required to put any remaining peanut products on hold until the investigation is completed.

Schools in Minnesota, California and Idaho were sent potentially tainted products from the Peanut Corp. of America through the National School Lunch Program in January 2007. Schoolchildren are the latest group of Minnesotans who may have been affected by the contaminated products, according to the Star Tribune.

Minnesota school districts had already been on high alert over the FDA’s growing list of 430 recalled snack bars, crackers, cookies and other foods.
