Salmonella is a type of bacteria. It is usually found in poultry, eggs, unprocessed milk and in meat and water. It may also be carried by pets like turtles and birds.
i'm thinking someone in the processing plant bought a pet turtle previously washed in contaminated water to work with them, and it fell into a vat of peanut butter. hopefully they scooped it out and the peanut butter isn't contaminated with turtle poo as well as salmonella.

Oh my god, this was creepy. I just opened this up and was like *hey isnt that the kind of peanut butter I have right now?* sure enough it has the numbers... And I just had some for breakfast.

It makes me wonder how safe ANY kind of food is. I buy my peanut butter from Trader Joe's, but I don't know where they make it. How safe do you think their PB is?

....I once ate some peanut butter in 1983 (!) when I was visiting Ibiza/Formentera and it was smooth and made from unroasted peanuts. It was divine! I have searched the world and the internet since then for some and cannot find any anywhere...any ideas?

I think like many things in life, you take your chances. I only buy my pb and almond butter at Whole Foods but it is pricey. Maybe I'm fooling myself but I figure with their philosophy, it should be "safer".

julesbaby, have you tried the Whole Food nut butters? Maybe it would be close to what you remember.

I had seen the salmonella warning about the PB and found out mine had the same numbers, and my son and I had eaten some last night! Now we both have sick stomachs! I have been cursing Peter Pan this entire day!!!

What philosophy do they have that would make the pb safer?

You could heat your PB if you're worried...in principle.

My guess is that an asymptomatic carrier was working in the processing plant.

Wow, I'm surprised that many people on the boards eat Peter Pan pb. I think the all-natural peanut butter tastes better.

Healthiest I could find was the Peter Pan no sugar added last I went shopping.


Thanks for the post about this by the way... else I wouldn't have known to dispose of it.

I don't buy Peter Pan because of the taste. I stick to Jif. But before I came here, I had never even heard of "natural" peanut butter, so I may have to try it.
