When I first heard about the peanut butter recall from the salmonella outbreak, I immediately panicked thinking that one of my very favorite sweet treats would be affected-Girl Scout Cookies. What would happen to my beloved Tagalongs and Do-Si-Dos? Oh horror of horrors! Would they be recalled as well?
Breathe easy, everyone: According to a press release on the official Girl Scout Web site, Girl Scout cookies are not affected by the peanut butter recall. A supplier called Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) is being investigated by the FDA for tainted peanut butter in the salmonella outbreak. PCA does not supply peanut butter to Girl Scout cookie bakers ABC Interbake and Little Brownie Bakers.
Hmmm...this is certainly great news. Maybe I'll celebrate by ordering a box of Tagalongs!
