I received and email this morning from Skippy Peanut Butter indicating that they are not a part of the recent peanut butter recalls by the FDA. I had previously written a post that questioned all peanut butter and mentioned my fear of serving peanut butter to my family.
I think it is important that companies reach out to consumers in this way and assure us that our families are safe.
Here is the text from the email I received:
We would like to assure you that Skippy® Peanut Butter is in no way related to the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) recalls. Specifically, no peanuts or peanut ingredients used in Skippy® Peanut Butter are sourced from PCA.
Skippy® has in place robust quality assurance and processing procedures to ensure product quality and safety.
As always, you should continue to enjoy Skippy® Peanut Butter and Fuel the Fun!™
