At least six deaths have been blamed on the most recent salmonella outbreak that's affected 43 states, including Colorado.

Nearly 500 people have been sickened by the latest outbreak of salmonella poisoning, at least nine of them in Colorado.
The outbreak has been linked to Peanut Corporation of America's factory in Georgia.

Health officials are focusing on 30 companies that receive peanut products from the plant, most recently Kellogg's and Little Debbie peanut butter toasty crackers and Little Debbie peanut butter cheese crackers were recalled Sunday.
So for the time being the FDA says stay away from any thing with peanut butter in it including cookies, cakes, and ice cream or you're sweet tooth could really suffer.
