Dangerous Peanut Butter leads to lawsuit

Posted under Uncategorized

Peter Pan peanut butter was recalled from store shelves after a batch of defective peanut butter has caused several consumers to become violently ill. Helen Williams felt the full and unpleasant effects of the peanut butter. She filed a personal injury lawsuit against the makers of Peter Pan peanut butter after discovering that her peanut butter contained salmonella.

The CDC published an article stating that 628 people in 47 states have been effected by the defective peanut butter. The makers, ConAgra, have stated that they attribute the salmonella to moisture in their plant that caused bacteria to grow.

Williams notes that ConAgra failed to properly inspect their product before selling it to consumers and is reponsible for her illness. She is seeking damages for medical expenses, increased anxiety, and lost wages.
