The Product Number Is. . .

Around our house Bill is the one who buys peanut butter. That's at least 90% of the time. If I buy it I will buy Jif or Skippy., never anything else. So, when the announcement regarding Peter Pan and salmonella I thought nothing of it because to my way of thinking there is never Peter Pan in our house. But, Bill announces that he did buy Peter Pan last time and he checked the product number and what we have is OK.

This morning he announces that he was looking at the wrong number. Yes, there it was right on the lid the leading digits 2111.

That many digits in a lottery would yield a prize. Not so here. We dutifully threw away an almost full jar of peanut butter and took the lid to grocery store for a refund. Gratefully we did not get sick but it was a little disconcerting.

I usually do not pay much attention to product recalls. I think I shall from now on.
