Certain lots of Smucker’s Natural chunky peanut butter recalled

November 17th, 2011

From Green Right Now Reports

The latest food recall involves peanut butter.

Smucker's initiated a voluntary recall of its Natural chunky peanut butter.

The J.M. Smucker Company on Wednesday announced a limited voluntary recall on two batches of 16 oz.  Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter Chunky because of possible salmonella contamination, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

No illnesses have been reported, but internal routine testing indicated possible contamination with salmonella, which can cause fatal infections in young children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Such illnesses typically begin with fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

Contact the Centers for Disease Control for more information.

The batches being recalled are stamped Best If Used by August 3, 2012 and August 4, 2012, and would have been purchased in November. The affected jars can also be identified by the UPC number 5150001701 (located on the side of the jar’s label below the bar code) and the production codes 1307004 and 1308004.

These jars of peanut butter were sold in Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

Customers who have purchased the identified Smucker’s peanut butter should discard the product and may call the company at 1-888-550-9555 with questions or for a replacement coupon on Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m..

No other Smucker’s products, such as Smucker’s creamy peanut butter, are affected by this recall, according to the company.
