There's Been A Recall Of Jars of Jif! Here's What You Need To Know

The J.M. Smucker Company issued a recall on some of their products over the weekend. In case you've missed it, I wanted to tell you what you need to know. The FDA and other health organizations are investigating an outbreak of salmonella poisoning in at least 14 states. After testing a jar of Jif at their Kentucky plant, it was determined that it could be the source of the outbreak.

Smucker issued a voluntary recall for several dozen products with lot codes of 1274425 through 2140425, but only if the first seven digits end in 425, which indicates they were made at the Lexington facility. The lot code can be found alongside the best-if-used-by date.

The FDA has a list of affected Jif products and UPC codes on their website but advises that the list may not be complete and to check the lot code of any Jif product.

The product has a two-year shelf life, so consumers are urged to check any packages of Jif peanut butter in their homes, regardless of purchase date.

The FDA says not to eat, serve or sell any Jif peanut butter products that are part of the recall, and if you have used any recalled peanut butter to wash and sanitize surfaces and utensils that have touched it.
