The salmonella outbreak seems to be affecting more and more companies who sell peanut butter products.

Meijer, Kroger and Walmart have recalled items containing peanut butter, including ice cream, crackers and cookies.

Most of the contaminated product seems to have originated in a plant in Georgia.

Yet another product joined the growing recall list on Wednesday morning. Classic Breaks peanut butter cookie dough, which is sold in 2 pound packages, could be contaminated with salmonella.

Peanut butter sold in jars appears to be safe, according to the health department.

The Girl Scouts of America also issued a press release saying their peanut butter cookies are safe.

Many grocery stores in the area confirm they have pulled all the recalled items from their shelves and are staying updated on the recalls as they are coming in.

The outbreak may have contributed to the deaths of six people and sickened more than 485 others in 43 states. The state health department says there have been three conformed cases in Kentucky, including one case in Lexington.

    Yeah, question people, How does salmonella get in peanut butter in the first place?? That's generally common to meat products. That's my concern is why? and how? This problem should never be an issue in the first place. Why is it that every year now we're running to contaminated foods? Be it pet food, meats, or peanut butter? It shouldn't be an issue to begin with.

    Seems like the FDA would have a better hold on what's going on here recently with the food that's being made, packed and shipped to the stores across the USA. What's going folks? You never heard of Salmonella ten years ago. Seems like every time you turn around there is some type of salmonella in food from these factories or farms. What's going to be next?

    Could you list all the products that are on the recall list?
