So will all the peanut butter cookies that the girl scouts are selling right now be safe?

Yes, they are safe. There are two bakers for Girl Scout cookies:

ABC's supplier is Hampton Farms, who, on 1/12/09, had their production and micro test records dating back to August 2008 inspected by the FDA for assurance. Production samples were also taken, with negative results for salmonella.

I have more info on the ABC-produced cookies because that is my council's baker. So rest assured in your cookie purchase and enjoy! Thank you for supporting your local Girl Scout troop :)
