About the 2007 Peter Pan Peanut Butter Recall
On February 14, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to consumers about a possible link between Peter Pan peanut butter and a salmonella outbreak. Though the FDA recommended that consumers immediately discontinue use and discard all Peter Pan peanut butter containers with a product code (found on the lid) beginning with “2111,” at least 288 cases across 39 states had already been linked to the product’s contamination.
The warning also extended to Great Value peanut butter brands bearing the same initial product code. Both Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter products were manufactured in the same Georgia facility operated by ConAgra, which also announced a voluntary recall shortly following the FDA warning.
Several individuals have required urgent medical attention and hospitalization after ingesting Peter Pan and Great Value brands peanut butter tainted with salmonella. In May of 2015, NBC News reported the salmonella outbreak was blamed for sickening at least 625 people in 47 states.
Ultimately, ConAgra Foods agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle a federal charge that the company shipped Peter Pan peanut butter contaminated with salmonella from a plant in Georgia, the outlet reported.
Symptoms of Salmonella Poisoning
Salmonella is a type of bacteria generally found in undercooked or improperly handled poultry or eggs. Typically the bacteria settle in the stomach and intestines which then become inflamed, bringing about the symptoms of salmonella poisoning (or gastroenteritis). In the case of the Peter Pan salmonella outbreak, contamination was attributed to the use of dirty containers or equipment since manufacturing the peanut butter requires the prime ingredient (peanuts) to be heated to germ-killing temperatures.
Salmonella poisoning can lead to potentially life-threatening infections in individuals with poor health or compromised immune systems. At Phillips Law Group in Phoenix, Arizona, our Peter Pan peanut butter recall attorneys and salmonella lawyers will pursue appropriate compensation for individuals affected by similar outbreaks.
Salmonella poisoning can be indicated by the following symptoms:
- Abdominal Cramping

I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional.
