Is peanut butter tested for aflatoxins by any government agency?

Is there a maximum allowable limit on aflatoxins in peanuts or peanut butter?

    Aflatoxins are caused by mold that grows on peanuts grown in moist climates that are later used to make peanut butter. Minute levels of aflatoxins are almost always present in peanut butter, and the levels are usually safe. It is only when an illness has been confirmed by the consumption of tainted peanut butter that the FDA will take additional measures to test peanut butter, and in those cases, it will only be limited to a particular brand or geographical region from which the peanuts came.
