All containers, varieties and types of Peter Pan peanut butter, all products containing Peter Pan brand peanut butter, and all jars of Great Value brand peanut butter bearing a product code that begins “2111” are potentially contaminated.

Potentially contaminated products include 3/4 ounce and 1.1 ounce single serving packs of Peter Pan brand peanut butter. All of these products contain peanut butter that was manufactured in ConAgra’s Sylvester, Georgia plant. Retailers and institutions possessing the products described should not serve or sell them. Any consumer possessing any of these products should discard them.

The Peter Pan peanut butter was distributed nationwide and to more than 60 countries. The Great Value brand peanut butter was distributed nationally through Wal*Mart. At this time we do not know if any of the Great Value brand was distributed internationally.

Since learning of the outbreak FDA issued multiple press releases and conducted media outreach to warn consumers not to consume Peter Pan peanut butter and certain Great Value brand peanut butter products. FDA also sent a team of microbiologists and experienced field investigators to ConAgra’s manufacturing plant in Sylvester, Georgia where the products are made to review records, collect product samples and conduct tests for Salmonella in an effort to identify the exact cause of contamination and eliminate it. FDA continues to work closely with CDC and state health authorities to track additional cases of Salmonella Tennessee illness and to determine what actions must be taken to further protectthe public health. FDA will continue to provide updates to the public as the investigation unfolds.
