Atkins announces return of peanut butter products


(Reprint from my Examiner column)


The recent peanut butter scare had manufacturers pulling products off the shelves faster than you can say salmonella, and with good reason. While many companies, like Atkins Nutritionals, believe the products they recalled were more than likely safe, no one wants to be the company that wasn’t careful. For that reason many low-carbers had to say good-bye to their favorite snack bars for a while. But rejoice oh deprived ones! Atkins has just announced the return of all things peanut butter-ish.
