Federal officials say more than 125 products have been recalled in a salmonella-and-peanuts investigation that keeps getting bigger.

The list ranges from goodies like cakes and ice cream, to dog biscuits, Food and Drug Administration officials said Wednesday.

All were made with peanut paste or peanut butter made at a Peanut Corp. of America plant in Blakely, Ga. that has suspended production.

The weight loss company NutriSystem was among the latest customers of PCA to be caught up in the investigation, issuing a recall Wednesday for peanut butter granola bars.

More than 480 people have been sickened in the outbreak, which has contributed to at least six deaths.

Some Coloradans became ill but no deaths have been reported.

    there is a great list of recalled products at the following link - it includes products that are missed out of the FDA's searchable database list but which are listed in the company recalled list, which I find confusing - I recommend checking it out - it also has a good list of products which are cleared as confirmed by manufacturers and FDA combined. http://blog.foodessentials.com/outbreak-alert/product-recall-list/
