Girl Scout Cookies Hit Streets, Scared of Salmonella?

Cookie junkies across the nation simultaneously erupted in joy and floundered in despair when '09 Girl Scout cookie shipments hit the streets and salmonella peanut butter reports hit the airwaves. But don't despair, according to MSN Health & Fitness:

"The

drum roll for recalls of peanut butter products continued without

letup, as more companies removed from store shelves everything from

cookies to Valentine's Day candies to ice cream.According to reports, Girl Scout cookies that contain peanut butter are not affected by the recall."

Whoosh! Is that a collective sigh of relief or the butt music of your

shortbread farts? We don't know, but at least you're free to eat

Do-Si-Dos Peanut Butter Sandwiches with reckless abandon and no fear of

food poisoning. Phew. Excuse us.
