Pulaski, Radford schools: Peanut butter safe

Students and their parents need not worry about the safety of the peanut butter served at local school cafeterias.
The peanut butter used in schools within Pulaski County and the City of Radford is safe for consumption, according to the Pulaski County and Radford City school nutrition programs.
The USDA, which supplies most of the peanut butter used in local school cafeterias, has issued a memo confirming the safety of their product.
Both school nutrition programs in Pulaski County and Radford said that they do purchase some peanut butter through the IJ Company of Johnson City, Tenn. under the label of Groeb Farms, and noted that this company has also released a memo stating that their products are completely safe and that they have no affiliation with the Peanut Corporation of America, whose products were involved in a recent recall.
Representatives from both school nutrition programs commented in a press release that they know the importance and the nutrient value of peanut butter, which is and always has been a staple of their programs, and that it is requested by many students every day.

“We do not want to deprive our students of this nutritious food without just cause,” the representatives stated in the press release. “We hope this statement will reassure students and parents of the safety of our meals.”
