Local Girl Scouts Defend Their Peanut Butter Cookies

Local Girl Scouts reassure NewsChannel 11 that Girl Scout cookies are safe.  This comes at a time when many products with peanut butter are under voluntary recall. Certain products made with peanut butter from a plant in Georgia have tested positive for salmonella.

NewsChannel 11 is told that Girl Scout cookies have no connection to that plant.

A Lubbock spokeswoman for Girl Scouts, Tina Mann, says Girl Scout cookies have been tested and passed the test.   And that includes Peanut Butter Sandwich and Peanut Butter Patties.

Mann says, "Normally you're really big top sellers are your Thin Mints and you're Carme Delights, and this year we've also seen the Peanut Butter Patties and the Peanut Butter Sandwiches just seem to be flying, and our troop leaders continue and our troop cookie managers continue to ask for more.  'Give us more of those!'"
