    ALEXANDRIA, VA, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - As part of its ongoing collaboration with
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the American Peanut Council
announced today that it has updated its consumer website to include a large
and growing list of brands unaffected by a recall of peanut products linked to
the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA).
    The vast majority of peanut products and foods containing peanut products
are not affected by this recall. For a list of products unaffected by the
recall, consumers should visit www.peanutsusa.com. For a list of products

    As the FDA has directed, consumers should also go to company and brand

toll-free hotline number, 1-877-564-7080, to answer questions.

monitor the progress of the recall, with consumer health and safety as its
paramount consideration.
