Jif Peanut Butter Products Recalled Over Potential Salmonella Contamination

May 23, 2022

The Escambia County Extension Service is encouraging local residents to check their pantry for Jif Peanut Butter product to see if they are recalled.

The Food and Drug Administration said Salmonella infections have been linked to multiple Jif peanut butter products produced at the J.M. Smucker Company facility in Lexington, Kentucky. These products were sold in Escambia County and across the nation.

J.M. Smucker Company has voluntarily recalled certain Jif brand peanut butter products that have the lot code numbers between 1274425 – 2140425, only if the first seven digits end with 425. The lot numbers are located alongside the best-if-used-by date.

Consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, sell, or serve any recalled Jif brand peanut butter that have the lot numbers. This product has a two-year shelf life so consumers should check any Jif peanut butter in their home, according to the FDA.

The recalled products include not only regular Jif peanut butter, but also multiple varieties of Jif branded peanut butters.

If consumers have products matching the above description in their possession, they should dispose of it immediately, according to the FDA.

The FDA recommends that if you have used the recalled Jif brand peanut butter, you should wash and sanitize surfaces and utensils that could have touched the peanut butter. If you or someone in your household ate this peanut butter and have symptoms of salmonellosis, contact your healthcare provider. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

    I have been sick at my stomach nausea,vomiting, and diarrhea for 36 hrs. I checked the lot # on the JIF peanut butter and it is one of the recall product numbers. I am starting to feel better now.

    What about Jif reimbursing customers that are affected??Food is getting too expensive to just throw a product away when the issue is not the fault of the customer

    And refunds? Come on Smuckers, food isn’t cheap!

    Everyone please take the time to check your Jif purchases! I recently purchased a box of “Jif To Go – Creamy Peanut Butter – 8 Individual Cups” and it appears that the numbers on the box & on each individual cup falls within the range of the first four numbers recalled & all end in 425. Number was 2085 425. These small cups are the type you would normally include in your child’s lunch! Thanks William for posting this article!

    @ William – going to try & send you 3 photos to your email address.
