Peanut Butter Recall Expanding

Updated:
Federal health inspectors say they've located the strain of salmonella behind the recent peanut butter outbreak. The strain came from the ConAgra foods plant in Georgia, said the FDA. Officials believe the contamination may have been caused by dirty jars or equipment.

During their investigation the FDA discovered that the ConAgra plant sent bulk Peter Pan peanut butter to a plant in Tennessee. That has lead to a recall on several popular peanut butter topping brands, including Sonic and Reeses have been added to the recall. These brands have been recalled and are no longer being sold. However, some consumers may still have these products in their home. Consumers who have any of the products listed below should discard them.

  • Sonic Brand Ready-To-Use Peanut Butter Topping in 6 lb. 10.5 oz cans. Sonic outlets used the topping until 2/16/07, when the product was recalled.

    Millions of jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter were recalled last month because of possible contamination. According to the CDC, more than 300 people were sickened by the tainted peanut butter nationwide, including 10 in Oklahoma.

    Several of those sickened have filed lawsuits against the company, including an Oklahoma City couple. James and Candace Fish filed a civil lawsuit against ConAgra Foods. They’re asking for more than $500,000 in damages from the company, which they blame for their 15-year-old son's illness.

    Jesse Fish was hospitalized in August then again in September after getting sick. The Oklahoma City-County Health Department confirmed on August 16th that Jesse Fish had contracted salmonella, according to court papers.

    Peanut butter in the Fish household tested positive for salmonella after the February recall notice, said officials.
