Peanut butter mess gets attention of Obama, FDA, lawyers

pbjIf you are perturbed by the recent peanut butter product recalls (or if your kids are not pleased to do without their beloved peanut putter crackers) you are not alone – a bunch of folks here in Washington are none too happy with the situation either.

President Barack Obama is promising a comprehensive review of FDA procedures after the salmonella outbreak that sickened hundreds of peanut product eaters, and possible cause the death of at least eight.

“I think that the FDA has not been able to catch some of these things as quickly as I expect them to catch,” Obama said yesterday during an NBC interview. “At bare minimum, we should be able to count on our government keeping our kids safe when they eat peanut butter.”

Meanwhile the FDA has launched a criminal investigation into the Georgia plant where salmonella and other food violations were found even after state inspector approval.

Meanwhile, lawsuits are already beginning to be filed, and personal injury attorneys keeping close watch on the developments in the capital, Georgia and across the country.
