Information on Food Recalls

Manufacturers recall food products all the time for a variety of reasons. They are announced on the news and many stores will contact their customers directly to inform them to return them for a refund or replacement. It is important to discontinue use immediately to prevent any health concerns.

If consumers have this product, they should discard it, but save the product lid. For a full refund, consumers must return the Peter Pan Peanut Butter or Great Value Peanut Butter product lid along with their name and mailing address to:

ConAgra Foods
P.O. Box 3768
Omaha, NE 68103 The lid will have a product code on top the first four numbers will be 2111.

Consumers with questions or concerns about the recall can call the 24-hour toll-free hotline at 866-344-6970. For more information about salmonella, visit

No, I would not risk it. Although the salmonella might cook out, cookies are not really cooked very much so there is a good chance they might make someone sick. Salmonella can be deadly in certain situations.


You can get your money back or a replacement by taking the jar back to the store or by contacting the manufacturer directly. Here is some more information from the FDA.

I think that the FDA should require more regulations on the produce that is meant to be consumed. From what I understand the field that the spinich was grown in, was flooded by water that contained raw sewage. These people knew that it had happened,and and yet they continued to grow it and then sold it as fresh produce! What is to stop them from doing it again? There should be a requirement that states somethig such as, "In the event of flooding, or other possible contaimination, all fields containing fresh produce intended to be consumed, are subject to an inspection and analysis of soil, plant matter, roots, and if applicable,standing water.


" I think that I am going to have a hard time eating any fresh produce until something is done to resolve this issue. I sure appriciate that garden of mine! I will miss lettuce this winter, but I would rather be safe than sorry!!!

I have just purchased three dozen Egg-lands Best large eggs. Given the recent, nationwide egg recall, how do I interpret the numbers and letters on the end of the carton to see if these are safe? What is a Julian date and where would I find that? Thank you.

You can go to and type in "egg recall numbers" or other words to that effect and get all the information you need. (CBS) Now that the already massive egg recall has grown from 228 million to 380 million eggs due to the largest salmonella scare we've seen in years, consumers are wondering which eggs are safe.


Three new brands have been added to the long list of eggs to check for possible contamination:
James Farms
Pacific Coast
Below you'll find the complete list of eggs which may be infected with salmonella. They are all produced in Galt, Iowa by Wright County Egg, but they are sold in grocery stories under many different brands.

But even as you check your fridge, think about what you order in restaurants.
Raw egg can be found in sauces and condiments, including Hollandaise sauce and Caesar salad dressing, as well as eggnog, milkshakes and smoothies. Raw egg can also lurk in homemade mayo and icecream, according to WebMD.
Now check your fridge. Here's a full list of brands, all produced by Wright Country Egg, to examine.



Dutch Farms
Farm Fresh
Mountain Dairy
James Farms
Pacific Coast

If you have a suspect brand, check the dates and codes stamped on the end of the carton.
The plant numbers affected have broadened. They used to be P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. Now they include P-1720 and P-1942. The three digit code that follows the plant number were originally said to range from 136 to 225, according to a statement by the Egg Safety Center. Now you must look for codes that range from 136 to 229.

For example, eggs in a carton marked with the number P-1026 227 should not be eaten. Consumers who have suspicious eggs can get a refund if they return them in their original carton to the store where they were bought

As long as you cook them until they are no longer runny there isn't a problem. So, don't throw your eggs away, just make sure they are thoroughly cooked and you will be fine.

None of the eggs reached New England if you live there. Doctors on TV said throw the eggs away of you bought any. Do not touch them just dispose of the carton.

Even if consumers have already checked their eggs based on the original egg recall list, officials at Wright County Egg suggest looking again. One end of each egg carton is stamped with a number starting with a P (which stands for plant). If the number on your carton is P1720 or P1942, look carefully at the three-digit number that typically follows it.


If that number falls within the range of 136 to 229, the eggs are part of the recall. (The numbers represent dates: The 136th day of the year was May 16; the 229th was Aug. 17.)

If you're still worried please don't just throw them away! Call the manager at the store you purchased them from and even if your eggs are not on the list I am fairly certain the manager will allow you to exchange them. Eggs I bought about two weeks ago didn't have any of those numbers but I was still scared because they were bought before August 17th and I am immune deficient and could not possibly fight off Salmonella. The news channels were talking about even more possible warning expansions yesterday morning because of grain those original farms sell to farms all over the country. The manager of my Safeway didn't have a single problem allowing me to return them for safety sake which put my mind to rest.

I was going through my email and I am subscribed to the FDA update on salmonella products, and I found a widget that keeps you updated. You can put in on the computer, and put it in favorites and then go to it.
