Starbucks Takes Peanut-Butter Items Off Shelves - WSJ.com
Starbucks Corp. said Monday it has pulled all products containing peanut butter from its stores in the U.S. and Canada.
Last week, federal health authorities said peanut butter and peanut paste made by Peanut Corp. of America are the sole sources of a salmonella outbreak that has sickened hundreds of people nationwide.
The coffee chain said its products haven’t been affected by the recall and that Peanut Corp. of America isn’t a Starbucks supplier. Starbucks said it was taking the action as a precautionary measure and that it removed the items last week.
The items include chocolate peanut-butter oat bars, granola bars, peanut-butter cookies, peanut-butter oatcakes, so-called protein plates and a pack of peanut butter that goes with Starbucks’s bagels
