Do you still eat candy with peanuts or peanut butter in them?

My mom is sending my kids some candy for valentines and she said that it contains peanuts so I may not want to let them have it. I have been very leery of anything containing peanuts or peanut butter since the major outbreak of salmonella. The only peanut thing I trust right now is my Jif Simply Jif peanut butter since we have yet to get sick from eating it and its not been recalled.

  • I don't eat anything with peanuts or peanut butter b/c Im breastfeeding....I miss peanut butter. I wouldn't worry about candy though. That recall was for the packaged crackers and peanut butter you get in vending machines.

  • You would think that they would have taken it all off the shelves by know but I wouldn't trust it. I would check the recall list and if the candy is not on it then I would think it is fine.

  • I just wasn't sure since they are adding more and more things daily lol. They are up over 1800 products recalled due to the peanut issue. Ugh.
