Peter Pan Peanut Butter

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan peanut butter or Great Value peanut butter due to risk of contamination with Salmonella

Tennessee (a bacterium that causes foodborne illness). The affected jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter have a product code located on the lid of the jar that begins with the number "2111." Both the Peter Pan and Great Value brands are manufactured in a single facility in Georgia by ConAgra. Great Value peanut butter made by other manufacturers is not affected.

If consumers have any of this Peter Pan or Great Value brand peanut butter in their home that has been purchased since May 2006, they should discard it."

Once again I have evidence to show what a weirdo I am. I still have an empty jar of the recalled Peter Pan peanut butter. You'll notice from the pictures that the whole jar was consumed. The Rooster ate it along with some help from the short rooster. They ate all of it before the recall. I kept the jar all this time so I'd have proof in case either of them got sick. I have officially thrown this in the trash can. I hope they don't start throwing up or something next week then I won't have anything to blame it on. Has there ever been a case of deferred Salmonella poisoning - as in a year and five months of delay?
