(UNDATED) - Indiana has reported seven cases of salmonella related to the peanut butter product recall.

The salmonella outbreak has been traced to the Peanut Corporation of America processing plant in Georgia.

Indiana Department of Education Spokesman Cam Savage says, so far none of the peanut butter products supplied to the state's school systems has been recalled. But Savage says superintendents in some school districts have removed all peanut butter products from school menus just to be safe.

He recommends parents keep updated on recent recalled products so a child doesn't bring a contaminated product to school.

According to the FDA's Dr. Stephen Sundlof, national brand peanut butter bought in a retail store is safe. Dr. Sundlof says he's confident those companies do not use the Peanut Corporation of America as a source for their peanut butter.
