Peanut butter eggs tossed because of salmonella scare

According to an article in the Charleston Daily Mail, Mercer County church is taking no chances with its popular Easter fundraiser.

Trinity United Methodist Church of Bluefield threw away 325 chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, along with several hundred others that had not yet been coated, on Monday because of concerns about salmonella, Pastor Charles Miller said Tuesday.

The handmade Easter treats, which the church has sold since 1990, were made with Peter Pan peanut butter.
