Is commercial peanut butter always pasteurized? If so, they must have not been too clean or did a good job with the recent peanut butter recall.
And how often and how well do those machines get cleaned? I expect you're much better off making your own at home.The local WINCO has a fresh made peanut butter machine you operate yourself. I think they have one for cashew and maybe almond butter one too.
They never really said from what I read online but I would say it was about the processing. Even if there was something salmonella related happening with the raw peanuts, the roasting process should have killed that. What came after the roasting, though, could have seen something introduced, poor handling, disgruntled worker doing something, a machine that hadn't been cleaned like it should have, it's hard to know.RE: the peanut butter recall, was that about the processing or the original condition of the peanuts?
Ours had a honey dispenser next to the peanut butter too. There used to be signs on them that said "warning, live bees do not open" but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't true🤣The local WINCO has a fresh made peanut butter machine you operate yourself.
