Go ahead and eat those Reese's pieces

because Hershey's does not buy peanut butter or paste from the source of the salmonella outbreak.

But as the New York Times says in their headline, this food safety story reminds us how complex the supply system is for prepared foods. Some other confectioner may make the peanut butter cups in your chocolate doodad ice cream - and they may buy from the Georgia firm.

Oh - and how about those dog treats that contain p.b.? I'm aware that even as I buy less and less prepared food for myself, my girls get the kitty equivalent of industrial food.
