Sylvester-  For the first time, FDA Investigators confirm they have found Salmonella bacteria "inside" the ConAgra Foods plant in Sylvester.

Inspectors began collecting samples inside the plant February 14th. Thursday afternoon, the FDA confirmed some of those samples tested positive for Salmonella. They haven't said specifically where in the plant the bacteria was found.

Last week, tests from several states found the same strain of Salmonella bacteria in at least nine jars. Company officials say after those tests, they weren't surprised by Thursday's announcement.

"We assumed with last weeks findings that Salmonella had been found in jars that it would be the case that it would be in the plant," said Stephanie Childs, ConAgra Spokeswoman.

Bulk peanut butter sent from the ConAgra plant to another plant in Humboldt, Tennessee is also part of the recall. The Tennessee plant used the peanut butter to produce three other products that were recalled and shouldn't be eaten. They are Sonic Brand Ready to Use Peanut Butter Topping, Carvel Peanut Butter Topping, and several Carvel ice cream products.
