Moms, Check Your Pantries!

I just had to throw away a brand-new carton of ice cream.

I found it listed on the FDA's peanut-recall list.

That is one BIG list and getting bigger all the time.

Unfortunately, the only advice for the consumer is to throw away the affected product in a safe manner.

However, I will choose to be grateful that my family hadn't opened and eaten this ice cream yet. No one here has gotten sick from eating contaminated peanut products. So I wasted $2 worth of ice cream (I got it on sale!)

I think I got off cheap.

Now please go and check your pantries.


  1. A few days ago, I cleaned out the kids' snack cabinet and threw out everything with peanut butter in it - the granola bars, candies, candy bars, everything. Yes, it seems like a waste, but it's surely better than very sick kids!! I can't believe it goes back to 2007!! At least jarred peanut butter is okay so that we can make our own peanut butter snacks!! Speaking of that, I need to get some peanut butter muffins baked to freeze for the kids to eat while I'm recovering from surgery. I almost forgot!!! :)

  2. Guess we am safe about this recall! No money wasted for us. lol
