|I just recently found out there is a recall on Peter Pan peanut butter and Great Value (Wal-mart) brand peanut butter. There seems to be reportings of salmonella poisoning found in some jars. The product code is 2111, which is found on top of the lid. I'm not sure how far spread this is, but since I have a jar of this in my household, I wanted everyone to beware.||

I saw a list of the states somewhere this afternoon where people have been or sick from eating Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter and if I remember correctly, it was spread out to almost every state. DH and I checked this evening and we only have Reese's peanutbutter. Just goes to show you how easy our food chain is to contaminate. First it was lettuce, then it was green onions and now it's peanutbutter. What next?

I'm not allowed to buy anything but JIF peanut butter.
(my husband initials are JIF and he insists we eat it...since I'm not much of a peanut butter person anyway...I don't really care...)
I saw the reacall too....it's always something these days. You can't eat, drink, breathe, drive, walk, sit at the computer...you'll contract something or something will kill you...it's a wonder we're all still alive anyway...

I know we went through about 5 jars with in the last month. We eat it all the time. I guess we are ok as we have not shown any symptoms. I had bought both GV and Peter Pan. I will go back to JIF now myself.
Husbands gone fishing..... I've gone fabric shopping

We had four jars on our shelves in the larder with the 9111 numbers. That was nothing as we probably have gone through 2/3 jars a month since July when people started getting sick from the peanut butter.
My family likes the Peter Pan with honey. I had to tell my kids to throw out the peanut and my daughter was a bit distressed because she had just eaten two spoonfuls out of the jar for lunch.

We used to use Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter until about 6 months ago. Now I buy Skippy Natural because it doesn't have hydrogenated oil added to it.
Years ago I used "Bama" peanut butter. Now I can never find it. Only their jams and jellies.

|I had a number of jars of the bad peanut butter & yes I got really sick from it. Believe me it's no fun. Our GS also got sick from it, his home not mine. I'm much better now but at times I have some of the milder pains in my stomach. Guess it takes awhile to completely leave your system. Your afraid to buy anything anymore. Every store her that sells food has pulled all the peanut butter. The thing is though this company packs frozen, can, flour & all sorts of food products for name brand companies. They also pack for fast food chains. Have had lots of recalls in the past. It's down right scary to buy food. They have already ruined the meats with injections. Some is down right nasty & not natural at all. It can't be good for us at all. Think I'll start growing my own veggies at least. That's not easy here in all this sand either.||
