Following the recent recall of 49 Jif peanut butter products thought to be linked to a Salmonella outbreak, several companies that use the peanut butter in their snacks and desserts have issued their own recalls, according to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
At this point, it’s unclear whether anyone has gotten sick after eating one of the newly recalled peanut butter snacks or desserts containing Jif butter (and potentially, Salmonella), but you don’t want to chance it. Here’s what to know about this round of recalls.
Which products are being recalled now?
Here’s where it gets a little tricky. Unlike the JM Smucker Company’s initial recall—which only included different varieties and sizes of Jif peanut butter—this time around, there are several separate recalls from multiple companies.
So instead of having one FDA recall notice listing all the recalled products, you’d need to go to the agency’s recalls page and look for the company that makes the snack containing Jif peanut butter.
While there are too many items to list individually, here’s a rundown of the companies that have issued peanut recalls for products containing Jif butter:
Fresh Del Monte is recalling fresh-cut fruit and vegetable products containing ready-to-eat Jif peanut butter dip. The UPC codes and best-by dates for all the recalled products are listed here. They were sold in retailers nationwide as both Del Monte brand products, as well as in 7-Eleven, Get Go, and Circle K retailers as in-house brands.
