Peter Pan Peanut Butter

I just checked my mail and I have a coupon for a free jar of peter pan peanut butter. This is the one they had to pull off the shelves in the stores. I'm not too sure that I'll use the coupon though. I think I'll always have what happened with it in the back of my mind. So my question to you is, would you buy this again if you had the free coupon?

I would probably use it. I'm sure that it is fine now. Otherwise it wouldn't be back on the shelves. Most times, things tend to be better quality than other brands, right after they have been in trouble for something. Now I'm not saying I would switch to Peter Pan, though. That is what I grew up eating, but now I prefer Skippy. A free jar of Peter Pan could be used for my husband, though. He doesn't have a preference, as long as it is peanut butter. lol

Yeah, my hubby said it's probably better now and that they'll probably be closely watched now. I switched to JIF after the recall and I really like that so I think I'll stick with that and just use the coupon for hubby cause he said he'll eat it.

Yes,I would use the coupon. Everything has been checked out and is okay now. So I wouldnt be worried about it. I love free coupons. I use them even if we dont like the product. I just pass it on to a friend.

I'm going to keep it. My husband said he would eat it. When they did the recall I actually started eating JIF and I really like it so I'm going to stick with it but get the free one for hubby.

I received the coupon in the mail, too. My husband and I actually contracted salmonella from our jar of Peter Pan peanut butter. He was very ill for about a week. I had a milder case because I was taking tetracycline for a different bacterial infection at that time. All that being said, I will most likely redeem the coupon. I'm sure the moisture problem at the factory has been remedied by now; or the FDA would not have allowed them to resume production.

It depends on the reason why it was pulled from the shelf in the first place.

personally I wouldn't but mostly because I don't like that brand I would rather eat JIff or skippy. I have never been much of a peter pan brand fan.

I would use it. I grew up on Peter Pan and I missed it while it was off the shelves. I bought a BIG jar of it the day it came back on the shelves.
