Peanut Butter Plant plans to open soon

July 9, 2007

Sylvester - - The ConAgra Food Plant still isn't making peanut butter as the company completes renovations at the site.

After Federal investigators determined a roof leak led to salmonella contamination in Great Value and Peter Pan peanut butter, the company decided to stop producing peanut butter and upgrade the facility.

They have replaced the roof and are now installing new equipment and re-designing their floor plan to further separate raw ingredients from the finished product.

No one has been laid off as a result of the closing.

ConAgra hopes to re-open next month.

The company teamed up with Co-Packer to make peanut butter as ConAgra completes the renovations.

It hopes to have the product back on the stands later this month.
