Vintage, punny get-well-soon card

This undated get-well card is full of puns and word play. Any card that uses "mis-steak" and "lettuce hope" is OK with me! I don't really know who to give credit to, though. The only pieces of identifying information on the back of the card are J.P., O-1724 and Made in U.S.A.

Obviously, "J.P." was the company, but that's not a lot to go on.

Here's the inside of the card, featuring an amazing parade of anthropomorphic food.1

The cursive text states:
"Sunday School Class
Dorothy Stoner
Harry Young
George Beck
Joe Siltzer"

Interestingly, neither "Joe Siltzer" nor "Joseph Siltzer" is a very common name in online searches. But that's still not quite enough of a lead for me to go on in determining this card's provenance.
