Has it given the trots yet? :P

Nope, I'm still amazing. In fact, I'm eating peanut butter in the form of a sandwich right now. I think the Salmonella gives it extra flavor, because this is the best PB Sandwich I've ever had.

It's my understanding that Peter Pan PN Butter is only sold in certain regions of the U.S. which is probally why several of you haven't heard of it. The info I saw on it said that they didn't know how the PN butter got infected, it doesn't normally have eggs in it, some companies may have it in thier recipe for some reason though. Also just because they did a recall on a production batch does not mean that all of that batch is infected ,just enough.

I'm not sure if they do it (I don't think they do, anyway), but it's the only possible reason for getting salmonella (A poultry-based disease) from peanuts.

It's a weird world we live in.

Maybe Peter Pan is made in a factory that processes egg products, which then means other products (that are made in that factory) could be infected :SICK:

you do know that salmonella isn't just in chickens, right? milk's another bad one for it, most likely though this is a case of someone not washing there hands after they've been to the toilet and then handling the peanut butter, which is rather good food source for bacteria, and so it it multiplies happily.

though if you make it 72 hours without symptoms you'll generally be okay, just make sure you wash your hands!


EDIT: of course it could also be the other type of salmonella, and halo could be a typhoid mary, just cos you aint sick doesn't mean you're not infected kids.

Is that a routine Salmonella checkup? ;)

I love peanut butter, but I hate the typical jarred varieities such as Jif or Peter Pan. Mostly because they're made with hydrogenated oils, which is really unneccesary. I buy fresh ground peanut butter ("Ingrediants: peanuts." hehe) from the local grocery store's deli (Publix, for you Floridians).

And I can't believe some people have never heard of Peter Pan Peanut Butter! Who else remembers those old commercials? "Peter Paaaaan... Peanut Butter!"

I know two people that got sick because of this peanut butter. One was my brother-in-law, who was sick for entire week before they figured it out, and only because they heard the news report, the doctor couldn't figure it out for whatever reason.
The other is a two year old who my wife babysits once in a while (we didn't feed it too him, we don't buy Peter Pan).

I unknowingly consumed some Peter Pan peanut butter which was bought fairly recently, not aware there was a recall until after the fact. As soon as the news was heard it was tossed out with the garbage.

Surprisingly though, nothing happened. Must be an extreme case of luck but then again I'm the only one at my work who can eat sandwiches out of the vending machines, so I must have a stomach made of cast iron.
