All the products (cookies, ice cream and pet food) contained peanut paste or
peanut butter made at a factory located in Georgia and owned by the Peanut

The FDA confirmed the presence of
salmonella at the PCA factory. The factory sells it products to more than 70
institutions and food companies, but not to individual consumers.
officials said the factory has suspended operations, and initial investigations
