Don't Eat That Clif Bar!

Peanut Butter Salmonella

Telling a peanut butter-crazed triathlete whose entire diet is based around peanut butter, and stuff made with peanut butter, that he can't have his Crunchy Peanut Butter Clif Bar post-run this week is like asking to be kicked in the shin.

But if you can convince your PB loco buddy to back off the PB because you're concerned for his ability to continue training, you'll be doing him a solid. (In the words of Juno.)

Clif Bar has recalled 14 of its products because they were made with the salmonella-contaminated products from the Peanut Corporation of America.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Clif Bar

So if you just stocked up this weekend, like coachubby and I, you may be in need of a mass Cliff Bar execution. It is hard to watch your household Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch bars face extinction, but take it from someone who not too long ago was a victim of tainted food and the resulting pooke: it's for the greater good of your intestines and the intestines of your fellow athletes.

Peanut Butter Kid

(Don't let your kid do this right now...or ever!)

It was hard to see our entire 401Ks get cut in half. But to also take away the peanut butter products in which we've buried our financial sorrows for months? Pure evil. Looks like proponents of strange PB perversions like almond butter or soy nut butter win...for now!
