Peanut Butter, Bad and Good

King Nut recalls salmonella-tainted peanut butter.

Reminds me of the fact that William F. Buckley, Jr. was a big fan of peanut butter; his favored brand was Red Wing. Mr. Buckley was once challenged to write an Ode to Peanut Butter, but he declined. Still, J.M. La Salla of Cheshire, CT, tried his hand at it, with a favorable response from Mr. Buckley.

According to this, Red Wing is now called Carriage House.

As an aside, the first talk in the Bio3 Seminar Series at Georgetown University was on multivariate methods of analysis, which were demonstrated on microarray data of wild type and a mutant corA strain of Salmonella typhimurium.
