This is not a hoax nor a scare. The first of Feb. a friend/neighbor became very ill, had severe abdominal pain. She went to the emergency room and was admitted to the hospital. Upon discharge, she did not know what made her so sick. I left on a trip, and when I returned DH told me her illness had been traced to salmonella in peanut butter. This one hit pretty close to home! Pitch that peanut butter and do not worry about the few dollars you spent on it. You do not want to get sick!

I'm so upset about this. My toddler loves and misses peanut butter. Every time I go to the grocery store, it hurts not to buy it for him. I've seen some organic brands. Would these be safe for him?

Hi Dina

At this time , only Peter Pan and WalMart brand have been linked to the recent outbreak. Unless you hear otherwise, all other brands are safe to consume.

Thanks VeraBlue. I had a JIF jar a few weeks ago and my daughter threw it out. Rats! It was good peanut butter.

Dina, the only peanut butter you have to be concerned about are the containers that have the code #2111 on them, which include Wal-Mart's Great Value and Peter Pan. All others seem to be just fine.

I'm the original poster of this thread and news reports confirm.

Yes, I was aware of the recalled brands just that I'm still skeptical. I will get the organic brand or JIF again. Thank you.

He can HAVE peanut butter. Just don't get him Great Value or Peter Pan.

if some already ate a jar of peter pan with 2111 and nothing happens, then not all jar with that sereal number is affected with the virus?

You don't want to take that chance, but then again, I'm so sick and tired of hearing the news media badmouth stuff that we've all been eating or drinking for so long!!

Now, all of a sudden, it's no good.
