Warning: Peanut Product Recall

Okay, so admittedly you probably don't need us starting your busy work week off with a Salmonella Contamination Warning, but considering that odds are fairly good that NIM readers enjoy the occasional protein bar, we thought we'd best be letting you know that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has recalled almost 50 different snack products over fears that they could be contaminated with salmonella linked to an outbreak in the U.S. that sickened hundreds and may have led to at least eight deaths.

"As of today, we have 39 products that were manufactured in Canada that we have on our recall list and there are 42 products that are imported from the United States," agency spokesperson Garfield Balsom said yesterday.
