Ky. halts FEMA meals that may use tainted peanuts

Recent Outbreaks Posted on

Kentucky officials say they've stopped distributing FEMA emergency meals for winter storm survivors that may contain recalled peanut butter.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says some emergency meal kits for storm victims in Kentucky and Arkansas may include packets of peanut butter that are part of a national recall over possible salmonella contamination.

Kentucky officials said Thursday they have received no complaints about illnesses from the peanut butter but are advising people to discard any packets they've received.

Arkansas officials say they have located two trailers where the meals were stored and none of those had been handed out.

More than 1,000 items have been recalled in the salmonella outbreak that has sickened at least 550 people, eight of whom have died.
