Peter Pan recall!!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I am posting this in case people have the jars in their cabinets. I know I have 2 jars of the affected peanut butter. One of which is 1/2 empty from me feeding it to my kids. Looks like I am going to Wally World today for a refund:

http://www.wsav.com/midatlantic/sav/...2-15-0001.html

Federal officials say a salmonella outbreak of nearly 300 patients in 39 states has been linked to a peanut butter produced in Georgia.

The Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, in Washington is warning you not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan or Great Value Peanut Butter due to the risk of contamination. The FDA says the affected jars have a product code on the lid that begins with the number "2111."

The agency says both the Peter Pan and Great Value brands are manufactured at a single facility in Sylvester, Georgia by Conagra. Great Value Peanut Butter made by other manufacturers is *not* affected.

If you have a jar, officials advise you to throw it out or return it for a refund. The largest number of salmonella cases were reported in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee and Missouri, but salmonella outbreaks have also been reported in Georgia.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is believed to be the first salmonella outbreak associated with peanut butter.

Conagra says it is recalling products only as a precaution. At this moment, none of its tests have indicated the presence of salmonella.

Wow, thanks for the heads up, I had not heard (and I live in VA!) Guess I can thank my hubby now, he insists we buy Jiff, even though I always preferred Peter Pan

With how sick my son has been the past 2 1/2 weeks (had a break with the stomach pain..now on to fevers and stomach pains and aches) I am taking the jar and my son to the doctor tomorrow. I called them early and told them his symptoms and the recall and we go first thing in the morning.

What I find ironic is the company tells you to either take it back to your store for a refund or throw it away. Some health people on the news said to hang on to the jar if its been used and if you come down with symptoms go to doc get tested and turn jar into someone for it to be investigated.

I've got a recalled jar of it - for my dog ! Fortunately, she seems to be feeling okay- she's only had a couple of spoonfuls.

I hope he's feeling better soon! (and thanks for the info about holding on to it- I hadn't heard that anywhere, and I just did a search on this to put this on my dog forum!)

post #14 of 23
we have two jars- one that is over half gone and the other i was going to open tonite! UGHHH and i LOVE Peter Pan PB. Jiff it is now- seeing as thats all Wallyworld had at all on their shelves they didnt even have any of the organic stuff.

We had a jar in our house of the peter pan peanutbutter with the matching code. Thank goodness it wasn't opened. I'm calling my mom and sisters tomorrow to make sure they don't have any in their houses. We already had one open jar in our house of Jiff peanutbutter- but that wasn't on the recall so i hope we're ok to use that.

We get the big 6 lb canister of Peter Pan at Sam's. I checked and it's got the recalled #'s on it. I wonder if Wally World and Sam's will really refund at the store...the PP info says to send the lid w/ applicable # on it to ConAgra Foods. The number on our gigantic canister is on the side, not on the lid. So I have to mail a 9" tall can to Nebraska??? Whatever.

We ate half of it!! Luckily we're fine.

They should without any questions. When in doubt take a copy of the article with you.

I was wondering why all the peter pan peanut butter was off shelves this morning when I went shopping.

I hope your son is ok, food poisoning is just awful for children.


We had a jar in the fridge with the matching lot number too, we tossed it. In this house I'm the one that is overly sensitive to anything I eat, luckily I hate peanut butter!

I had an opened jar(and just had a sandwich yesterday) and a BRAND SPANKIN NEW(like just bought on Wednesday)and tossed them both since they both had the numbers.....What a waste Peter Pan is the best.....

My aunt & uncle had just bought a BIG jar - like, the BIG ones you get at Sam's Club- with the same code on the top, and had eaten 1/2 of it already Their boys had been sick, so they do believe it was from this!

That's horrible. I hope they'll be OK. We had the same one, the huge can that's almost as big as an oatmeal canister. We ate half of it too. Beandip even had a little dab of it (shhhhh). Luckily, we're all fine. I took it back to Sam's today and got some Jif.

I seen that on the news and we ended up buying one of the contaminated jars because it was on sale and that night it was on the news, the craziest thing tho is my mom bought it because she was going to eat it when she came home that day and well she didnt instead she ate my food but o well so she was so happy after she seen the recall on the news that night !!!
