      More women opting for preventive mastectomy - but should they be?

      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a 100 percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

The Western Trade Group says its Roasted Feed Grade Peanuts used peanuts recalled by the Peanut Corp. of America because of the risk of salmonella.

The Food and Drug Administration says animals may become infected and carry the disease to other animals or humans. People could also become infected by handling the peanuts.

Western Trade said Tuesday its feed grade peanuts were distributed in the first four months last year to livestock and wild bird feed packers in Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, and North Dakota.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the product.
