Is Contaminated Peanut Butter Still On Store Shelves?

Comments Off

Be careful if you are in the market for peanut butter because apparently despite all the press coverage concerning the salmonella outbreak contaminated peanut butter may still on the shelves at various markets and stores.

According to news10now.com:

On Tuesday, our station received calls claiming Mike’s Market in Syracuse was still selling jars of peanut butter possibly tainted with salmonella. When we went there to check it out, we found at least a dozen recalled jars still on the shelf.

When we went to the counter to buy one of the jars, the store owner immediately told us we couldn’t, that he was aware they were recalled and was in the process of restocking the shelves.

Although the owner has since taken them down, the jars of tainted peanut butter sat out on the shelf for nearly a week since last Thursday’s recall. The Onondaga County Health Department says consumers still need to be alert when they are out grocery shopping.

This stunning news comes on the heels of a nationwide voluntary recall of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter that contains the code 2111 on its lid. Hundreds of people have gotten sick from the contaminated peanut butter and are just being made aware of the cause of it all. If you ate some of the contaminated peanut butter and got sick as a result contact us at InjuryBoard by calling 1-800-593-5446. We can help so give us a call now.
