Delayed Warnings....

I can't decide how I feel about this. Shocker I know. I have some pretty strong feelings about lots of things.

Two years ago, there was a fire sale on peanut butter on Amazon. If you know me, you know that I not only love to buy from Amazon but also that I love to buy things in bulk. Clearly, both of these loves came together in this instance .... and I think I was really into peanut butter at the time.
{Please take note... TWO years ago...}

More recently....

I got an email from Amazon on Monday just as the work day was beginning to come to a close. Apparently the peanut butter that I purchased in February 2009 from Amazon is potentially at risk for Salmonella.
Now, upon closer inspection of this email I learned the following:

  •  The recalled peanut butter spread may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems
  • The recall affected only Skippy Reduced Fat products
So, while I appreciate Amazon alerting me to the product recall - albeit two years after my purchase - I have to wonder why they even alerted me. I didn't purchase Reduced Fat, I purchased myself 6 jars of full fat peanut butter. Doesn't their database allow them to filter out my full fat peanut butter purchase?

I'm pretty thankfully that my fatty choice saved me from {potential} salmonella poisoning.
