Learn about the Jif Peanut Butter recall and attendant problems. On May 20, 2022, the J. M. Smucker Company issued a voluntary recall of certain peanut butter-containing products.

Jif Peanut Butter’s Impact on other Products

Just when it was perceived that the impact of the recent peanut butter recall would remain confined to Jif peanut butter, things have taken a turn for the worst. It turns out that several other related products are feeling the impact and pressure from Jif peanut butter contamination. It’s not just Jif brand creamy peanut butter on the chopping block.

The store sources claim at least 69 products are affected by the Jif Brand peanut butter recall, including many Creamy Peanut Butter variants and sizes like creamy peanut butter, reduced-fat, crunchy, and natural peanut butter variants and container types made with the Jif peanut product.

Early Jif Peanut Butter Recall Info is Alarming

Reports of injuries are coming from West Virginia all the way to the California coast. For example, the J.M. Smucker Company recently recalled multiple Jif peanut butter products marketed in the United States and Canada. The Jif peanut butter recall is due to a potential salmonella contamination outbreak that federal regulators claim has led to at least 14 illnesses in consumers at vending machines, the 7-Eleven Chain, and retail stores the Pak N Save across the United States.

But it’s not just Jif, and the Smucker Company with Salmonella Senftenberg concerns pulling these products from their store shelves. The FDA confirms that Wawa Company is now pulling at least two products from its stores suspected of salmonella contamination, including Creamy Peanut Butter and “Wawa Apple & Peanut Butter Dipper.” Garden Cut Garden Cut products recalled contain a 0.75-ounce Jif Peanut Butter Cup inside with apple wedges and celery bites as well.

Also, Cargill is recalling 795 8-ounce boxes of candies and munchies manufactured with the recalled Jif peanut butter, including:

  • Milk and dark chocolate-covered peanut butter Ritz crackers
  • Peanut butter meltaways
  • Peanut butter eggs and fudge
  • Fresh Seasons Power Packs.

These items were distributed locally at the Wilbur Chocolate retail store in Lititz, Pennsylvania. These candies and snacks were also sold online and distributed nationwide at Wilburbuds.com.

The recall impacts foreign markets, including countries like Canada, Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Honduras, Spain, and Japan.

What is the reason behind the Cascading Effect?

Surprisingly, there is a long list of companies that use Jif peanut butter while manufacturing their products. These products include peanut butter sandwiches, chocolates, and many more products.

Initial Recall

The parent company of Jif, J.M. Smucker Co., has reportedly decided against proceeding with a voluntary recall. The announcement regarding the recall was made last week, and it was a voluntary recall. Why J.M. Smucker Made the Recall The decision to recall the Jif peanut butter was made after the traces of a salmonella outbreak.

The traces were found at one of the facilities that manufactured the peanut butter for Jiff. The executives confirmed that the manufacturing company is based in Lexington, Ky. The traces of the salmonella outbreak were found in the specific facility by the Food and Drug Administration.

Other Companies also Issued Notices of Their Product Recalls.

After the recall announcement, other companies have begun recalling their Jif products. They are also doing this to ensure that their products do not end up causing any outbreaks among consumers. Almost every day, a new company is announcing the recalling of their products, like creamy butter, from the stores in fear of salmonella contamination.

For example, Mary’s Harvest Fresh Foods, located in Portland, Oregon, has recalled their celery and apple peanut butter cups. Cargill issued a recall for various online marketed snacks sold through the Lititz, Pennsylvania, Wilbur Chocolate store. Taher, located in Plymouth, Minnesota, recalled their Fresh Seasons Power Packs since they all contain peanut butter from Jif. Are we missing anything?

Among the affected products are varieties of veggie and fruit snack packs. Many companies have added Jif as a confectioner to these products, like creamy peanut butter. As a result of the possible outbreak, these companies have started recalling their products. They do not want to get dragged into the same crisis Jif peanut butter itself faces.

49 Recalled Products Belong to Jif itself

Jif officials have confirmed that they have already started recalling their products carrying creamy peanut butter in particular. In total, 49 products have been identified by Jif from its product list brings peanut butter. These products range from cups containing 0.75 ounces of peanut butter cups to 40-ounce peanut butter-containing jars.

Other major companies affected by the recent recall are Albertson and Del Monte. For Albertsons, it was the snacks made by the company in-store, and for Del Monte, PB& J sandwiches were impacted.

How to Establish if a Peanut Butter Product Got Recalled?

Using the lot code numbers, you can establish whether or not the particular product was affected and recalled. The lot code numbers can be located near the date “best buy.” You must not confuse the identified peanut butter lot codes with the UPC number and brand information present in the bar code recalling the product due to potential salmonella contamination.

If the product carries “425” at the end of the seven-digit lot codes, it was indeed manufactured in Lexington. Similarly, if a product by Jif brand peanut butter and creamy peanut butter has the first four digits of lot codes ranging from 1274 to 2140, it’s a recalled product.

Experts strongly advise that you don’t ingest these products, as they have a very high contamination risk. The products carrying these codes or ranges must be disposed of immediately.
