Peanut Alert: Another Company Linked To The Salmonella Outbreak

Check your pantry! Peanuts are still a problem in this country, and now another company has been linked to the peanut plant that started the salmonella outbreak.

The Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat any peanuts or peanut products sold by "Westco Fruit and Nuts", based in Irvington, New Jersey. Officials say the peanuts may have come from the "Peanut Corporation of America", which is the source of a widespread salmonella outbreak.

FDA officials say "Westco" sold the peanuts and used them in mixed nut products between November 2008 and February 2009.
