Peanut Butter and Salmonella Litigation

Peter Pan and Great Value brand peanut butter, both manufactured in the same Georgia facility, have been linked to a recent nationwide outbreak of salmonella food poisoning. ConAgra, the manufacturer of both brands, recalled the jars of peanut butter with a product code located on the lid beginning with the number “2111.”  Jars of the tainted peanut butter have been distributed throughout America, however, and have made their way to the pantries of many innocent Texans.

The symptoms of salmonella food poisoning typically appear 12 to 72 hours after the tainted product is ingested. Some common symptoms of salmonella food poisoning are:

diarrhea
fever
nausea
headache
abdominal or stomach pain, and
vomiting

These symptoms may disappear after four to seven days, even without treatment. Unless treated with antibiotics, however, a victim may be able to pass the disease on to others for up to two months. The use of antidiarrhreal medicines may lengthen the period of contagion as well. In children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems or in poor health, salmonella food poisoning can result in severe diarrhea requiring hospitalization, life-threatening infections, or even death. In February 2007, the Texas Department of State Health Services advised WIC Program participants who have experienced any of these symptoms from eating Peter Pan or Great Value peanut butter beginning with the product code “2111” to contact their physicians or health care providers immediately.

The nationwide recall of all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter beginning with product code “2111” extends back to October 2004.  Great Value brand is nationally distributed through Wal-Mart.

If you or someone you care about has eaten Peter Pan or Great Value brand peanut butter or peanut butter-containing products and have experienced any of the symptoms of salmonella food poisoning, seek immediate medical attention.  Your health may be in danger.
