Multiple varieties of Jif peanut butters were voluntarily recalled on Friday May 10, 2022 because of potential Salmonella bacterial contamination. Since the identified products were shipped nationwide, the amount of consumer households affected could be substantial. According to the FDA, the contaminated products have been linked to 14 illnesses in 12 different states.

The affected varieties of Jif peanut butter have lot code numbers 1274425 through 2140425 and the first seven digits end with 425 (see images here). If you have peanut butter within these codes, you should throw it away immediately and wash and sanitize surfaces and utensils that could have touched the peanut butter, according to federal regulators. If anyone in your household ate this peanut butter and have symptoms of salmonella, it's important to contact your healthcare provider.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection that most frequently infects people through contaminated food and water. Symptoms most often begin 12 to 72 hours after infection and may vary depending on the person but can include nausea, cramps, fever, diarrhea and vomiting. Illness usually lasts four to seven days and most infected recover without treatment. Children under the age of 5 and senior citizens have a higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms.

The products’ parent company — J.M. Smucker Co. — has asked consumers to contact them with questions at www.jif.com/contact-us or call 800-828-9980 Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM ET. Anyone who suspects they may have been sickened by a recalled Jif product should file a report with their local health department.
