Peter Pan and Great Value Product Code 2111 Recalled
On March 10, 2007, the FDA warned consumers who have purchased Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter products since October 2004 to discard them, and not to eat any peanut butter with a product code beginning with 2111. Earlier this month, the FDA said it found the strain of salmonella that tainted peanut butter made at the ConAgra Foods plant in Sylvester, Georgia. Government and industry officials have said the contamination may have been caused by dirty jars or equipment. On February 14, 2007, ConAgra Foods recalled lots of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter due to salmonella contamination and widespread reports of related illness in multiple states.
The recalled peanut butter jars have a product code beginning with “2111” on the jar lid. Consumers are being advised to avoid the recalled peanut butter. This lot of peanut butter was 1st manufactured in October 2004 and continued through the February, 2007 recall. ConAgra manufactures both the Peter Pan and Great Value brands in the company’s Sylvester, Georgia facility. The FDA has sent investigators to ConAgra’s processing plant in Sylvester, Georgia to review records, collect product samples and conduct tests for Salmonella Tennessee.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 425 people have fallen ill from the outbreak of salmonella that has been traced back to the plant in Sylvester, Georgia.
