Girl Scout Cookies Not Affected by Peanut Butter Warning

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Neither of the two licensed bakers affiliated with Girl Scout® Cookies, ABC Interbake or Little Brownie Bakers, source their peanut butter from the supplier involved in the current peanut butter warning.

All ingredients used in Girl Scout Cookies are regularly inspected to ensure they are safe for consumption.

FDA and other regulatory agencies have indicated that Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) is the focus of their investigation concerning a recent Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter. PCA does not supply peanut butter used in any variety of Girl Scout® cookies.

Food safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us. The Girl Scout® Cookie Program is the nation’s premier entrepreneurship and educational program for girls and we appreciate your support in your local communities.
