Singapore recalls peanut butter and baby food

Singapore's Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority has recalled Peter Pan Peanut Butter and Earth’s Best Organic 2 Apple Peach Barley Wholesome Breakfast baby food due to contamination. From Channel NewsAsia:
If you have bought Peter Pan Peanut Butter, you can now get a full refund.

This is because certain batches are suspected to be tainted with Salmonella – a food-borne bacteria.

The product’s US-based manufacturer, ConAgra Foods, said buyers have to mail the lid of the peanut butter jar, together with their name and mailing address, to Naspac Marketing Private Limited, Number 2 Toh Tuck Link, #03-00, K-L Hiap Aik Building, Singapore 596225.

The peanut butter jars have already been taken off the shelves, and Singapore's Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) is conducting tests on them.

The AVA has also ordered that a baby food product be taken off the shelves.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration, Earth's Best Organic 2 Apple Peach Barley Wholesome Breakfast baby food may be contaminated with a bacteria which can cause botulism, a form of food poisoning.
