Peanut butter

How could peanut butter, that American staple, possibly be bad? If it’s contaminated. In 2014, almond and peanut butters made by one company were considered the likely source for an outbreak in five states that sickened six and put one person in the hospital. The company voluntarily recalled the products. An FDA report found that equipment wasn't properly sanitized. Peanut butter can also become rancid if it's kept a long time. This occurs when exposure to oxygen breaks down its fats.
