I am not sure where this goes.... But I had to share with you guys, since I know that being gluten free I personally eat a lot of peanut butter on apples and rice cakes and such... so I had to share this....

I had TWO jars of contaminated peanut butter at my house that I have been eating from for weeks!!!! :huh:

Peanut butter recall affects Brevard County

Peter Pan, Great Value products with code 2111 are targets

FLORIDA TODAY, ASSOCIATED PRESS

and WKMG LOCAL 6 NEWS

ATLANTA -- A salmonella outbreak that has slowly grown to nearly 300 cases in 39 states since August has been linked to tainted peanut butter produced in Georgia, federal health officials said.

The affected jars have a product code on the lid that begins with the number "2111." The affected jars are made by ConAgra in a single facility in Sylvester, Ga., the FDA said.

Jars of peanut butter with that product code were found today on store shelves in Brevard County.

Lakeland-based Publix Super Markets said it getting rid of any potentially tainted peanut butter, and is inviting customers who bought the brands in question

Where do you find the product code??? I always use Great Value brand peanut butter! I have three containers of it here at home.

There was no code on the lid... There's a number imprinted in the bottom of the jar 625-11. Does that look right? If so, I guess we're safe, huh? Half of the jar is gone, but I'd happily throw it away if it may not be safe.

Well, I live in New York and yup, you guessed it, I have 2 brand new jars of Peter Pan with the code #2111. Tomorrow is grocery day so I will see if the store will exchange them.

I had the peanut butter recall from Peter Pan...I made those 3 ingrediants peanut butter cookies a few weeks ago...didn't have any problems, but I just threw that bad boy out!!

Since you cooked the peanut butter, there is a good chance you killed any possible samonella. Most people don't cook it, they just eat it on bread or whatever. That could have been ugly.

Everyone should go read this article my mom just emailed me from her celiac support group:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070215/ap_on_..._XJUMDW7oF'

How scary!! we have two jars of it in our cabinet! I am really starting to wonder if this is why I have been feeling so crappy. Maybe this has been my problem all along, not celiac? The symptoms look relatively the same, and I know I ate at least 3 jars of this peanut butter with this code that I brought from my home (we bought all 5 jars at the same time) while I was abroad in Australia, which is the same time when I started feeling the celiac symptoms. hmmm..... could this possibly prove to be the root of my problems? one article I found says that salmonella can turn into a problem with the intestine. anyone else have any ideas about this?

please make sure you check your peanut butter jars and throw any of the 2111 jars away!!!

My brother and his son were wondering why they haven't been feeling well for the past 3 weeks. Thought it was the stomach flu that they just couldn't shake off. They heard this on the news and sure enough they had the peanut butter. The value one.

Boy that would get me so angry because they kept eating it. I wish it wouldn't take so long to find these things out.

Do you think that is causing all this stomach flu problems sweeping the nation. I told my brother to hang on to the jar incase there are problems that set in that will pop up down the road. Like damage done to the intestines (we all can relate to that)

I had two jars of the peanut butter. ONe almost gone and one just opened. My kids have been eating this stuff for months. I hope they are ok. I through them out and bought some Jif today.

Nice of them to inform us now, since it started in August.
