This was originally posted at KFA. The person was nice enough to go to the hyperboards forum and post it there, and has given permission to link to it.

When I follow links to KFA, I just get a sign-up page, so I am linking to the hyperboards thread.

Partial quote:

Quote:
I opened a brand new jar of WalMart ("Great Value" brand) soy nut butter today, thought it looked strangely "solid" for soy, made myself a sandwich, took one bite, and immediately knew it was peanut butter. I haven't eaten PB in nearly four years (used to love it), so the taste was very distinctive to me and it was definitely NOT soy butter. I thought maybe I was mistaken, so I called in my hubby to taste it, and he said, "What are you doing eating peanut butter in the house?!"


The people who tasted it are not allergic -- their child is. Fortunately, no-one was harmed in this case.

Note to mod: I'm not sure where is the best place to post this. Feel free to move it or cross-post as you see fit. Testing has not yet been done - but the FDA is involved. Much like the original poster, I do not want to start a panic, but I feel it is best to warn people to avoid this product until the results are in.

The person has now updated information at both KFA and hyperboards. The product is safe.

Apparently, the company has done a great job of making their soynut butter look and taste like peanut butter.

It is manufactured by Hilton Soy Foods (http://www.soybutter.com) in a peanut/nut-free facility.
