Girl Scout Cookies Safe from Peanut Recall

Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts wants to assure the public that two bakers of peanut butter Girl Scout cookies are not affected by the peanut butter recall. The peanut butter used by ABC Bakers' Peanut Butter Sandwich and Peanut Butter Patty cookies is not linked to the recall. According to ABC Bakers', they do not source peanut butter from either PCA or King Nut. ABC Bakers' peanut butter supplier is Hampton Farms. Further, incoming peanut butter shipments are tested for salmonella to prevent contamination of our products. ABC Bakers is the company used by Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts for their cookie sales. Little Brownie Bakers also announced in a statement that their products are not made with peanut butter tied to the recall.
