FDA Announces Warning Regarding Potentially Contaminated Peanut Butter

On February 14, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration released a warning to consumers not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter due to the risk of contamination with Salmonella. The affected jars of peanut butter have a product code that begins with the numbers "2111". The product code can be found on the lid of the jar.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection can include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. Those who are in poor health or have weakened immune systems can develop life-threatening infections. Anyone who has recently eaten Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter from this lot and has suffered any of the symptoms should contact their doctor immediately. Any illness related to the peanut butter should be reported to the state or local health authority. The first illness may have occurred as early as August 2006. ConAgra, the manufacturer of the peanut butters, has recalled all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter with a product code beginning with "2111". Consumers who have questions should contact ConAgra at 866-344-6970.
