Jif peanut butter recalled, potential salmonella contamination

Locals are encouraged to check the peanut butter in their home
2022-05-22 Jif Peanut Butter
Some Jif peanut butter products have been recalled due to salmonella contamination.

Local health departments are advising residents to check the UPC numbers on their Jif® brand peanut butter. Several types and sizes of the brand could be contaminated with salmonella.

J.M. Smucker Co. issued a recall late last week after discovering the potential of salmonella contamination among several of its products. 

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, young children and frail people. Healthy individuals may experience diarrhea, a fever higher than 102ºF, vomiting, stomach cramps and signs of dehydration. Symptoms can begin as soon at six hours after swallowing the bacteria or up to six days later. Recovery is expected within 4 to 7 days, according to the CDC.

"Four of five (80%) sick people reported eating different types of Jif brand peanut butter before getting sick," according to the CDC's website.

Consumers should follow these steps to see if the peanut butter in their homes has been recalled:

  1. Check if you have Jif peanut butter in your home.
  2. Locate the lot code on the back of the jar, under the Best If Used By Date (the lot code may be next to the Best If Used By Date for cups or squeeze pouches).
  3. In the lot code, if the first four digits are between 1274 and 2140, and if the next three numbers after that are '425', this product has been recalled and you should not consume this product.
