Peter Pan just recalled all their PB jars that have a product code starting with "2111" because of a link to salmonella poisoning. You might want to avoid this peanut butter for a while. We have 2 half-used jars of it in our pantry, DP refuses to eat my "nasty natural peanut butter". I guess this explains why he's been having stomach issues!

I was actually just going to start a thread on this but found yours. A guy I worked with actually got sick from eating the peanut butter and told me about it yesterday. That is how he found out about the peanut butter.<br><br>
Becareful everyone.

Jilian-- It seems like your DP's Peter Pan peanut butter is the real "nasty" stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Just for those who haven't heard, it was both Peter Pan and one store brand of peanut butter that were affected. (I've forgotten the store brand as it wasn't a store local to me. Can someone post the name?)<br><br>
Anyway, it isn't all peanut butter, so people probably shouldn't panic about this. It would be a great time to try other nut butters, though, if your partner/kids usually refuse to try them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
DH, who hates peanut butter, recently fell in love with some almond butter that comes pre-mixed with honey that I found at Whole Foods. I find "mainstream" peanut butter sweet enough to eat alone on a sandwich, but I prefer to add jam or honey to the natural nut butters, so I got the almond+honey version when on sale. DH ate most of it. We ran out, and I went back to our usual unsalted, unsweetened almond butter, and DH said, "What happened to the good stuff?"<br><br>
So I guess that's our new brand. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>

Here's the other brand name on the peanut butter salmonella outbreak, quoted from an AP news story:<br><br>
"...federal health investigators said they strongly suspect Peter Pan peanut butter and certain batches of Wal-Mart's Great Value house brand — both manufactured by ConAgra Foods Inc.<br><br>
Shoppers across the country were warned to throw out jars with a product code on the lid beginning with "2111," which denotes the plant where it was made."<br><br>

I had a jar of peter pan with the numbers 2111, I threw it out this morning I had some last week but I had no effects or got sick I guess not all jars were effected but I was taking no chances and none of my boys even like penut butter so maybe I got lucky there cause I don't buy penut butter that often.

Do you keep your peanut butter in the fridge? After hearing that so many people in our AP group keep their peanut butter in the fridge, I asked a friend about it. Apparently, if after taking the time to mix up your natural nut butter you stick it in the fridge, it doesn't separate! And here, I have been having to mix the stuff every single time my kids want almond or peanut butter.
