Peanut butter recall hits local schools

Two Mountain View schools will no longer be selling peanut butter cookies or dough after a recall of these products, which may have been exposed to a salmonella strain.

Students at Huff Elementary School and Graham Middle School sold the Dough-To-Go and Jane Dough products late last year for campus fundraisers. There are no reported salmonella cases from these products at the more than 150 California schools which participate in the fundraisers.

Over 400 other peanut butter products also have been recalled since several deaths and hundreds of illnesses were linked to a potential salmonella outbreak at the Blakely, Georgia plant of Peanut Corporation of America. California health officials said the product may have been used in Dough-To-Go and Jane Dough items. Peanut butter sold in grocery stores is not affected by the recall.

Both Mountain View schools sent home letters notifying parents, and reminding them that there have been no reported illnesses from the peanut butter. Consumers are encouraged to dispose of these items, if they still have them.
