HERSHEY, PA., January 17, 2009 - The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) today issued a statement related to peanuts:

The Hershey Company Does Not Purchase Peanut Butter,
Peanuts or Peanut Products from Peanut Corporation of America
All Hershey and Reese's candies are safe to consume

(say what?!?!?)

No products made by The Hershey Company, including items and brands in the iconic Reese's franchise, are affected by the recent recall related to peanut butter. Hershey does not purchase any peanut butter, peanuts or peanut products from the Peanut Corporation of America. Peanut butter for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups is made in Hershey facilities under the most stringent safety and quality standards.

All of our products are safe to consume. This includes all items sold to other food companies and used as ingredients in other products.

Thank you, Oh Chocolate Lord Of Mine they are safe because I think I'd need intervention without them!

If they DID in fact get their peanut butter from the P B Corp. of America would it be wrong to still purchase it and just say a little prayer before each bite? Is that soooo wrong? I'm such a glutton...

Perfect. This definitely makes life more complete. I just love those delicious little morsels of happiness (though am refusing to eat them until I'm down to pre-Christmas weight! 3 pounds to go ....)
