Starbucks Drops All Peanut Butter Products

Company says its products not part of Salmonella recall
January 27, 2009

In a mysterious development, Starbucks has pulled all peanut butter products from its US and Canadian stores, even though Peanut Corporation of America is not a Starbucks supplier. According to Reuters, the company withdrew its peanut butter products as a "safety precaution."

It might be just coincidental that a Canadian customer of Starbucks claims to have suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction last spring after eating a Starbucks Peach Yogurt Parfait. The parfait contained undeclared nuts. CBC reported earlier today that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is investigating the incident, including Starbucks' labeling practices.
