Death by Peanut Butter

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Safety

We’ve been hearing on the news and around the blogosphere about the tainted peanut butter, meaning to check our cabinets since we occasionally buy Peter Pan peanut butter (my husband’s favorite).

Imagine my surprise when we discovered that we do, in fact, have one of the recalled jars that begin with 2111:


Imagine my horror when I realize that we ate the better part of the jar already:


Here’s our dilemma – it would cost as much to send the lid to ConAgra as it would for the peanut butter in the first place. Since we obviously haven’t died or gotten sick from it, should we assume it’s salmonella-free and therefore safe to eat? Or should we just toss it?

    You should send in the lid and throw out the jar. It’s not worth taking chances. Plus, this means you can buy a jar of Smucker’s All Natural Peanut Butter, my favorite brand.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
