Thanks to LynnieLew’s thread I found out about the problem going around with Salmonella, I too had a jar of affected PB in my pantry! Bad week to try out a different brand of PB!
Please be advised that the affected brands are both Peter Pan and Great Value (Walmart’s brand). I hope its ok I posted this here since it may affect so many people’s health.
Here is an excerpt from an article:
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.
