Steer clear of peanut butter: U.S. authorities

By Jim Wolf Jim Wolf
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. health authorities told consumers on Saturday to avoid eating products that contain peanut butter until they can determine the scope of an outbreak of salmonella food poisoning that may have contributed to six deaths.
"We urge consumers to postpone eating any products that may contain peanut butter until additional information becomes available," Dr. Stephen Sundlof of the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety said in a teleconference with reporters.
As of now, there is no indication that "major national name brand jars of peanut butter sold in retail stores are linked" to bulk supplies of peanut butter and peanut paste recalled for fear of possible contamination, the FDA said in a follow-up statement.
The company at the center of the matter, Peanut Corporation of America, or PCA, said it had been informed by health authorities that some samples of its products had tested positive for a salmonella strain that may have originated in a Blakely, Georgia, peanut processing plant.
The peanut butter and peanut paste recalled by PCA was used by many other manufacturers to make such products as cakes, crackers, candies, cookies and ice cream, the FDA said.
"In terms of food products which contain peanut butter, but have not yet been recalled, we urge consumers to postpone eating these products until information becomes available about whether that product may be affected," an e-mailed statement said. "We have been advised by manufacturers that product specific information may be available within the next few days."

This Week's Now Famous Person

Rosalie is now famous because he is appearing in the "Got Mustard Campaign" .She is also once again the President of the Somerset Singles Ski and Golf Club.

So when you see or contact Rosalie be sure to tell her you've seen her in the "Got Mustard" campaign. You can see the other hundreds of people by clicking on the underlined words above.

So many people have volunteered to participate that we have found it necessary to change the way the slide show runs so that people can browse rather than wait to see their photo with the "digital mustard" on their upper lip. One can replace the phrase in the section box with their first name and deleting any other text in the box. Then only the slides that contain that name are displayed.

If you had your photo taken and can't find it in the slide show please send us an email. If you would like to send a photo to be included, send it to We will supply the "digital mustard".

Congratulations Rosalie

From Our Readers:

Dear Peggy Jo

From  Carl

This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their
civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.  
The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your
Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity was just stolen.  
The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado . This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Onboard Safety and Homeland Security Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association

WED 2009-01-21
The key to fun boating is safety! Setting out to sea sounds easy enough, but there are many precautions you must take before settling sail to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Many of these precautions need to be taken even before you set out. Before leaving the dock you should first make sure that your boat is prepared with the right safety equipment and that all crew are familiar with them. Other safety issues include ergonomics of equipment, proper use of various tethered and non tethered flotation devices, differences in "lake" sailing, "coastal" sailing, "offshore" sailing and handling heavy seas both near and offshore. If you are traveling between Canada and the US there are new rules you must follow. The reporting and identification requirements will be discussed, as well as phone numbers and which marinas to use. A Customs and Border Patrol officer will be present to answer your questions. Join us for an authoritative seminar on the intricacies of border crossings and safe seamanship at the Edison Boat Club (EBC) on Wednesday, January 21 at 7:00pm, as the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Customs and Border Patrol are teaming up to discuss safety equipment and immigration and customs issues.
