About the 2007 Peter Pan Peanut Butter Recall

On February 14, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to consumers about a possible link between Peter Pan peanut butter and a salmonella outbreak. Though the FDA recommended that consumers immediately discontinue use and discard all Peter Pan peanut butter containers with a product code (found on the lid) beginning with “2111,” at least 288 cases across 39 states had already been linked to the product’s contamination.

The warning also extended to Great Value peanut butter brands bearing the same initial product code. Both Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter products were manufactured in the same Georgia facility operated by ConAgra, which also announced a voluntary recall shortly following the FDA warning.

Several individuals have required urgent medical attention and hospitalization after ingesting Peter Pan and Great Value brands peanut butter tainted with salmonella. In May of 2015, NBC News reported the salmonella outbreak was blamed for sickening at least 625 people in 47 states.

Ultimately, ConAgra Foods agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle a federal charge that the company shipped Peter Pan peanut butter contaminated with salmonella from a plant in Georgia, the outlet reported.

Symptoms of Salmonella Poisoning

Salmonella is a type of bacteria generally found in undercooked or improperly handled poultry or eggs. Typically the bacteria settle in the stomach and intestines which then become inflamed, bringing about the symptoms of salmonella poisoning (or gastroenteritis). In the case of the Peter Pan salmonella outbreak, contamination was attributed to the use of dirty containers or equipment since manufacturing the peanut butter requires the prime ingredient (peanuts) to be heated to germ-killing temperatures.

Salmonella poisoning can lead to potentially life-threatening infections in individuals with poor health or compromised immune systems. At Phillips Law Group in Phoenix, Arizona, our Peter Pan peanut butter recall attorneys and salmonella lawyers will pursue appropriate compensation for individuals affected by similar outbreaks.

Salmonella poisoning can be indicated by the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Dehydration
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal Cramping
