Peter Pan resumes production in Sylvester!

August 13, 2007

Sylvester-  Peter Pan Peanut Butter is once again rolling off the assembly lines at ConAgra Foods Sylvester plant.

Last week the company resumed production of Peter Pant at the Sylvester plant. Right now the plant is only producing two lines, creamy and crunchy. Jars produced at the Sylvester plant will join what was co-produced by another company as the product is shipped out to stores nationwide Monday.

"We're confident that the Sylvester Plant is ready for its resumption of Peter Pan Peanut Butter and we're happy that its back up and running," said Stephanie Childs, ConAgra Spokeswoman.

Production at the Sylvester plant was stopped February 13th when the Center for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration determined the peanut butter was contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The plant resumed production after 15 million dollars in renovations to the plant that replaced the roof, faulty sprinkler system, and rebuilt the entire assemble line.
