FEMA meals contained recalled peanut butter

Thursday, February 12, 2009

MISSOURI -- There have been no tainted peanut butter food packets distributed in Missouri as part of the disaster assistance being delivered by federal and state emergency management agencies following the January ice storm.

Information from FEMA said commercial meal kits manufactured by Boca Grande Foods and assembled by Red Cloud Food services with peanut butter packets were distributed as part of the recovery efforts in neighboring Arkansas and Kentucky. FEMA is assisting with the recall. Still, emergency management officials urge caution.

"If there is any doubt about any food item, throw it out," said Tom Hall, FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer.

FEMA continues to maintain close coordination with states as well as constant vigilance regarding any industry notices to ensure that the agency has not and is not issuing any meals subject to recall.
