Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 3, 2007
Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, a top Dallas personal injury law firm, is assisting people across the country who have been sickened by contaminated Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter sold at Wal-Mart since May 2006. The contaminated peanut butters have a product code located on the lid of the jar that begins with the numbers 2111.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) linked Peter Pan Peanut Butter to more than 300 salmonella cases across the country. On February 14, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned consumers not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter due to risk of contamination with the salmonella bacterium that causes illness. Symptoms of the illness include fever, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and dehydration. In people with weak immune systems, salmonella can cause life-threatening infections.
As a result of the CDC study, ConAgra, the maker of the contaminated peanut butter, is recalling all jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter beginning with the product code 2111.
Eberstein & Witherite is very involved with many of these salmonella contamination lawsuits in Texas and elsewhere. The experienced and talented lawyers at Eberstein & Witherite have spoken directly with the ConAgra general counsel, the maker of both Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter, as well as the insurance company's head person for the handling of these cases. They have also spoken to other attorneys around the country working on peanut butter cases. If you or someone you know became ill eating Peter Pan peanut butter or Great Value peanut butter with the product ID 2111, please call Eberstein & Witherite for a free consultation. The lawyers at Eberstein & Witherite are knowledgeable about these specific peanut butter cases and have made all of the critical contacts to allow them to properly represent their clients.
