FDA Warning to Nursing Homes Regarding Recalled Food Products Containing Peanuts
The FDA and CDC have received reports of deaths of elderly nursing home residents who had underlying health conditions and
had consumed recalled food products containing peanuts contaminated by Salmonella. The FDA is issuing a warning to nursing
home and other long-term care facility administrators, owners, and food managers to ensure they are aware of the dangers of
their residents eating recalled food products, and urging them to check their institutional supply of peanut butter and other
products containing peanut ingredients for food items that may be affected by the recent voluntary recalls.
