 Atlanta -- A judge's panel has decided 20 federal lawsuits filed against ConAgra Foods over the tainted Peter Pan Peanut Butter case will be heard before an Atlanta judge.  

More than 400 people were sickened nationwide after ConAgra discovered salmonella bacteria got into peanut butter jars produced at its Sylvester plant.

It caused lawsuits to be filed against ConAgra all over the nation. To conserve resources a judge's panel decided this week the lawsuits would be heard in the Northern District of Georgia by Judge Thomas Thrash.

A co-producer with ConAgra hopes to have the peanut butter back on shelves next month.
