Almonds + Fuel = Yum?

I bought some almond butter, which was shortly thereafter recalled.  So I did a little digging.  It turns out that people aren't getting sick from salmonella, this article says, but because the nuts are being treated with PPO, a fuel additive. 

Coincidentally, PPO was "banned by both the National Hot Rod and American Motorcycle Racing Associations, where it had been used as a fuel before being deemed too dangerous.”
