Default Peanut butter recall

Peter pan peanut butter starting with the code 2111 has been linked to salmonella.

FDA Warns Consumers Not to Eat Certain Jars of Peter Pan Peanut Butter and Great Value Peanut Butter
Product May be Contaminated With Salmonella


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan peanut butter or Great Value peanut butter due to risk of contamination with Salmonella Tennessee (a bacterium that causes foodborne illness). The affected jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter have a product code located on the lid of the jar that begins with the number "2111." Both the Peter Pan and Great Value brands are manufactured in a single facility in Georgia by ConAgra. Great Value peanut butter made by other manufacturers is not affected.
If consumers have any of this Peter Pan or Great Value brand peanut butter in their home that has been purchased since May 2006, they should discard it.
Symptoms of foodborne illness caused by Salmonella include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. In persons with poor underlying health or weakened immune systems, Salmonella can invade the bloodstream and cause life-threatening infections. Individuals who have recently eaten Peter Pan and Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 and have experienced any of these symptoms should contact their doctor or health care provider immediately. Any such illnesses should be reported to state or local health authorities.
FDA's warning is based on a just-completed epidemiological study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the states and local health agencies, which links 288 cases of foodborne illness in 39 states to consumption of varying types of Peter Pan peanut butter. This report was provided to FDA on February 13.
The outbreak appears to be ongoing and the first consumer may have become ill in August 2006. The cause of foodborne illnesses can be difficult to identify. As a result of extensive epidemiological testing and recent case control studies, CDC was recently able to identify Peter Pan peanut butter as the likely cause of illness. Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 is manufactured in the same plant as Peter Pan peanut butter and, thus, is believed to be at similar risk of contamination.
ConAgra is recalling all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 that already was distributed. The company also is destroying all affected products in their possession. The company will cease production until the exact cause of contamination can be identified and eliminated. ConAgra will advise consumers to destroy any Peter Pan and Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 in their possession. To assist in this endeavor, FDA has sent investigators to ConAgra's processing plant in Sylvester, Georgia where the products are made to review records, collect product samples and conduct tests for Salmonella Tennessee.
FDA will provide regular updates as more information becomes available.
Consumers who have questions should contact ConAgra at 866-344-6970.

Lucky me! We have 5 jars of the mentioned "2111" Peter Pan. My son loves the stuff. My wife is going to send the lids in to get a refund... or will the stores just take them back?

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

PS: no ill effects have been noted to date

I just got back from South Georgia, and they are really having a hard time with this. They have never had such an outbreak, and the impact of this is setting up to put a lot of private farmers out of business. South Georgia is one of the few places that private farming is still feasible, but after this, that is probably going to change.

Noah, Is the impact of one outbreak going to be that drastic?
Hope you enjoyed your stay in SoGa. I think you are correct about it being one of the few places that family farming is still viable.

We have 3 jars of the stuff here in Lakeland, FL in our pantry. 2 were the regular stuff that my son's been eating out of for the last couple of weeks and 1 jar was the low fat stuff that my wife hs had and been eating out of for a couple of months. None of us have gotten the food poisoning yet but were sending them back anyway. Kinda makes you wonder how some of the 2111 stuff was tainted but other apparently aren't.

Cliff we had 3 jars here in my home, one had already been open and half gone. Luckily none of us got sick. We took our lids back to Wal-Mart and they gave us a full refund. If not go to Con-Agra website they have an address you can send in your lids to and they will send you a refund.
