Exclamation Peanut butter warning! (RE: FDA Recall ONLY!)

My local NBC television station just posted a warning for Great Value and Peter Pan peanut butter. If you have a jar that has the batch number (on the lid) beginning with "2111," throw it out. It may contain salmonella.

Check with the store where you bought it for replacement information.

My NBC affiliate here only mentioned Peter Pan. I checked our supply, and found two. I called my g'mother, who gave us the PB, and told her. She checked her stuff, and found the Great Value brand with the code number. Although at that time, I wasn't aware of Great Value also being a part of it, I told her to call around. Sure enough, about 15 minutes later, we confirmed that GV is also being recalled.

I have an entire case at work I have to put on 'quality hold'....Mine are 32 oz size, too. We use them to make peanut butter chiffon pies with chocolate crusts and peanut butter swirl brownies.

That just proves that for the most part, buying the cheaper store brand is usually a cost efficient decision. Most name brand products sell their product to store labels, too...with no difference to the recipe or formula.
