BY Alaric DeArment

West Des Moines, Iowa A supermarket chain in Iowa has recalled products made with peanut butter that may contain salmonella bacteria.

Hy-Vee said Saturday that its bakeries would voluntarily recall baked goods made with peanut butter. It included all sell-by dates in the recall, saying it sold the products in various packaging and quantities and that all products should be destroyed or returned for a full refund.It took the action after the Peanut Corporation of America issued a recall of the peanut butter used to make Hy-Vee baked goods, a precautionary step because of an unresolved nationwide outbreak of salmonella.The Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been investigating the outbreak since earlier this month after samples of Peanut Corporation of America peanut butter made at its plant in Blakely, Ga., tested positive for contamination with salmonella. PCA sells peanut butter in bulk to bakers and institutions such as long-term care centers and cafeterias, not to consumers.
