ConAgra expands peanut butter recallMar 13, 2007 | www.thenortheastgeorgian.com
Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin says the current Peter Pan/Great Value peanut butter recall has been expanded to include all peanut butter and toppings produced since October 2004, that have the product code 2111.
In a follow-up to the recent Salmonella outbreak linked to peanut butter, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is informing consumers that ConAgra has extended its recall of all Peter Pan peanut butter, and all Great Value peanut butter beginning with product code 2111, including peanut butter toppings, back to October 2004.
The FDA has included the recall as part of an ongoing investigation.
Consumers who have purchased any of the products since October 2004 should discard them. FDA's advice to consumers continues to be not to eat any Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter beginning with the 2111 product code.
Symptoms of food-borne illness caused by Salmonella include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
Individuals who have recently eaten peanut butter-containing products from these companies and who have experienced any of these symptoms should contact their doctor or health care provider immediately and report the illnesses to their state or local health authorities.
