U. S. Peanut butter recall leaves this Disney World sweet spot in a “bit of a pickle”

A recent recall of peanut butter in the United States has left a Disney Springs sweets shop in quite a predicament.

On Friday, May 10, a voluntary recall was begun by the J.M. Smucker Company, which makes Jif peanut butter. Because shipments of the peanut butter were widespread and include multiple states, the effects of the recall are expected to also be wide-reaching. One affected venue is Gideon’s Bakehouse at Disney Springs.

According to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), “The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Senftenberg infections linked to certain Jif peanut butter products produced at the J.M. Smucker Company facility in Lexington, Kentucky.”
The dilemma was described in a post on Gideon’s Bakehouse‘s Facebook page. Ironically, per the post, every single limited flavor in the month of May at Gideon’s is peanut butter-based, leaving the Bakehouse in a “bit of a pickle.”
The post reads as follows:
I’m in a bit of a pickle. All of our wonderful limited flavors this month are Peanut Butter based, and due to the recall, all bulk stock of PB coming into the state has been slowed down. We need hundreds of pounds a day and have zero. So, officially, there are no PB-based Desserts in the shop, aka Peanut Butter Crunch, Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl, and the fantastic PB&J Cake Slices. This issue won’t likely resolve until next week, and it will take us a couple of days to ramp back up production since, as you know, everything we do is made from scratch by hand and takes over 24 hours to prepare. If my tears could turn into Peanut Butter, you would all have a lifetime supply. ⁣

To compensate, we’ll be adding Coffee Cake and Dark Coffee Cake in greater numbers to BOTH stores starting Wednesday available at open until sell out. That Cookie is limited because it takes so long to make, so we might not be able to maintain it for long. Keep an eye on feed and stories for flavor replacement updates going into the weekend. To replace the PB&J Cake Slice until this blows over … drum roll … the Original Red Velvet Cake Slices return! Cream Cheese is back!!⁣

The Nitro PB Cold Brew will still be available at @DisneySprings. It is made with peanuts from our favorite Georgia Farm, not peanut butter. ⁣I appreciate your patience through all of this. We’re doing our best to get back on track ASAP and bring you some fun things while you wait.
The post notes that the Nitro PB Cold Brew at Gideon’s will still be available, as it is made from peanuts, but not peanut butter.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
