(WWTI) — The J. M. Smucker Co. is recalling select Jif peanut butter products sold in the United States due to potential salmonella contamination. The United States Food and Drug Administration warned that salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy people who are infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Additionally, in rare circumstances, salmonella infection can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.
The FDA website stated that the recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets. Recalled products include the products with lot codes 1274425 through 2140425. The lot codes are included alongside the best-if-used-by date. The full list of recalled products is listed below.
