Local Food Banks take extra precautions

The peanut processing company behind a national salmonella outbreak filed for bankruptcy Friday.  Researchers traced the outbreak to the peanut corporation of America's south Georgia plant.  The strain has sickened more than 600 people and is linked to nine deaths.

More than 1,900 products have been recalled and pulled from store shelves, leaving many folks wondering what is safe to eat.  Local food banks are taking extra precautions.  "Any peanut butter product we are getting in to this food bank right now, we are essentially setting it, even though it hasn't been recalled, we're setting it aside in the case that it might end up getting recalled, " says Park Hinman with the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
