Ron Simon Has Collected Millions of Dollars for Clients in Prior Peanut Butter Salmonella Litigation

In recent years, it has become clear that improperly manufactured peanut butter can serve as a vehicle for salmonella contamination.

Peanut Butter Salmonella lawyer Ron Simon has been at the forefront of this fight from the beginning. Mr. Simon represented hundreds of victims who suffered severe salmonella poisoning after consuming Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter made by ConAgra Foods Inc. in 2006-2007. He also represented hundreds of victims in the 2008-2009 Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) outbreak—which was responsible for nine deaths and over 700 illnesses.

In both outbreaks, Mr. Simon’s clients were compensated for their injuries with settlements totaling millions of dollars.

In addition, Mr. Simon has twice been to congressional hearings in Washington, D.C. to present evidence, witnesses, and testimony concerning the safety measures necessary to keep peanut butter safe for consumers. These efforts have led to positive changes in the way peanut butter is manufactured in the United States.

While prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome, you can count on our attorneys to provide you with skilled representation and sound legal counsel.

  1. On Friday 05/20/22 I ate Jiff Peanut Butter lot# 2093 425 best if used by 04/03/2024. On Saturday I had very bad cramping and went to the restroom several times. Today I am better, how do I resolve this?

  2. It’s been a real literal shitty two wks. 5 kids under 7 all been nonstop pissing out their asses and vomiting like crazy w high fevers.. weren’t able to keep any liquids/food down. Finally got the last one over the hump & Our kindergartener spiked a 102 fever again yesterday— as it turns out we just realized we have the tainted jif peanut butter.. taking stool samples and dr. Ordered a lab- will be in contact

      Thank you.

  3. My 12 year old lab ate the recalled Jif peanut butter with his medication. He had stopped eating his dog food so we fed him more peanut butter. Then he’d at least have some food in his stomach. It got so bad over about a 3 week time period he couldn’t even get up to go outside. We assumed it was old age and we didn’t want him to suffer any longer so we had to euthanize him. I wonder know if it was the peanut butter that caused his rapid deterioration😢 It was heartbreaking having to make that decision and at the time we didn’t know about the recall.

  4. I was sick for 4 days. It started on 4/30 after eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. My symptoms started with fever, chills, stomach cramps, nausea and then vommiting. I had severe diarrhea for 4 days and could not leave the bed. I also suffered from dehydration as I could not hold any food or drink down during those 4 days. I could not be further than 10 feet away from the bathroom due to the severe diarrhea. I contemplated going to the hospital but didn’t want to pay the hospital bill. Wish I had. I just found out about the recall on Jiff peanut butter. I still have the jar of peanut butter.

  5. I was sick for 5 day ate a peanutbutter sandwitch on 5/17/22 got sick very next day.nasuia chills direra .Went to urgent care put me on antibiotic two days later could not take it went to my family Dr told me stop the antibiotic and hydrate as much as possible could not stay off the toilet finally started to relief me on Saturday my stomach felt like it was at war stomach is still sore and still have headaches I still have jar of penut butter with the lot code 13524250217.27.

  6. I have some of the peanut butter listed in the recall and I ate some of it. I had diarrhea on and off for a few days, but didn’t seek medical attention because I figured it might have been something that didn’t agree with me, I mean I only found out about the recall about two days ago, so had no idea that it was something like this that didn’t agree with me. I don’t really watch tv, I only found out because a friend on Facebook posted it. Guessing some kind of medical documentation is required?

  7. Hello.
    I have two jars of the Jif peanut butter on the recall. I am always eating peanut butter but in May I got extremely sick. I honestly thought I was Terminally ill. It was bad. My doctor ran blood test. I was not formally tested for Salmonella but my liver test was very high and my white blood cell count too. My doctor wants to retest me next month. I instinctively stopped eating the peanut butter and I started to feel better. When I saw the recall I checked the numbers on the jars and they are a match.

  8. Jeanette Bailey
    i have been sick since 5/24/22. i have been to the ER twice and my regular doctors once so far. i am still sick fighting the vomiting, body aches, stomach cramps, headaches and sweats. It has been a shit show. I can’t leave my house i have missed my daughter’s college graduation. i had to watch it on tv because i could not leave. I also had to miss out on a lot of other really important engagements due to no feeling. i Hope we can figure this out.

  9. We ate this Jif both had severe cramping,yet my wife’s cramping furthered a prolapse which was an er trip,They did blood and urine tests there and it came back as e.coli,not salmonella….a week later Costco contacted us about the recall.

  10. I ate JIF crunchy peanut butter from #2040 425 every day for 7-10 days in late May and developed severe abdominal pain with nausea and diarrhea. On May 26, I was diagnosed with diverticulitis and prescribed antibiotics. I stopped eating the peanut butter at that time (only because it was the crunchy variety and I was put on a soft diet) and the pain went away.

  11. I got severely ill for 5 days couldn’t work or leave the house severe diarrhea high temperature and cramps finally a friend told me about the recall of jif so I went to the cabinet got the jif peanut butter and checked the lot number and it was a match still have it what should I do
