Check Your Peanut Butter

Submitted by Karen M Blakeslee

As we prepare for fairs and people are deciding what recipes will be made for fair entries, please remind everyone about the Jif Peanut Butter recall and to check their cupboards if they have the recalled products.

This FDA link shows how to look for the specific lot codes in this recall, https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/outbreak-investigation-salmonella-peanut-butter-may-2022.

This FDA link lists the Jif products included in this recall, https://www.fda.gov/safety/recalls-market-withdrawals-safety-alerts/j-m-smucker-co-issues-voluntary-recall-select-jifr-products-sold-us-potential-salmonella.

Please pass this information on to food leaders or others interested in entering baked goods. Just because a product is baked is not a guarantee that the bacteria associated with this recall will be destroyed. And we especially do not want to see no-bake cookies made with recalled peanut butter.

Please let me know if you have questions.
