Stomach aches and vomiting. These are the symptoms some are complaining about after eating peanut butter the FDA recalled Thursday.

Peanut butter lover Tonia Felter says after fifteen years of eating the Peter Pan brand, she's switching. She found a half eaten jar with lot number 2111 in her kitchen cabinet.

"I thought it was just the stomach bug. I hardly ever get sick that way. Gonna start paying closer attention," Feltner said.

"The illness will consist of stomach cramps, fever, and diarrhea. It's like stomach flu and you wouldn't think anything about it," said Pike County Environmental Supervisor Zora May.

May says there have been eight confirmed cases of salmonella in the state of Kentucky since September of last year which could be connected to the Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter. May says peanut butter is safe to eat. She contacted all supermarkets in the Eastern Kentucky area and they've cleared their shelves of jars that could be infected with salmonella.

May says if you still have a jar will lot number 2111, you should throw it away or take it to a local grocery store. They may give you a refund.

FDA officials say if you have any questions, you can contact Con-Agra at 866-344-6970.
