DENVER (AP) - A Colorado health official says there's been no increase since early February in the number of salmonella cases possibly linked to a Vitamin Cottage store that bought peanut butte from the Peanut Corporation of America.
Vitamin Cottage officials voluntarily recalled their packed fresh-ground peanut butter on Feb. 2 as a precaution because the products may have been tainted. Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment spokesman Mark Salley says the number of cases possibly linked to the Lakewood store's peanut butter was six as of Feb. 5.
Salley says that number has not increased, contrary to some reports.
Vitamin Cottage co-owner Heather Isely says they've found a new peanut vendor.
