Check your food for dates and be prepared when you go to a restaurant that your child may not be able to a order peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I was at Panera’s today and peanut butter is off the menu until they are sure it is safe to serve.

    Phew! Peanut butter used in the home still sounds OK–this is from the FDA info: “Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), which manufactures both peanut butter that is institutionally served in such settings as long-term care facilities and cafeterias, and peanut paste—a concentrated product consisting of ground, roasted peanuts—that is distributed to food manufacturers to be used as an ingredient in many commercially produced products including cakes, cookies, crackers, candies, cereal and ice cream.”

    But can we eat the sauce that comes with the Nime Chow?
