Jif’s parent company, JM Smucker Company, issued a reminder on May 20 for 49 peanut butter products of various sizes after 14 cases of salmonella were reported in multiple states. An FDA investigation traced the contamination to one of the company’s facilities in Lexington, KY.
Now the salmonella outbreak has risen to 16 cases and two hospitalizations in 12 states, according to the Last update from the CDC. The investigation is ongoing.
Consumers should not eat recalled products and should throw them away, the CDC said. Do not feed recalled foods to pets or other animals. Wash surfaces and containers that may have touched the recalled foods with hot, soapy water.
“Peanut butter can have a very long shelf life, so be sure to check any Jif peanut butter you have at home to make sure it hasn’t been recalled,” the CDC wrote.
Symptoms of Salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Symptoms usually begin between six hours and six days after exposure, and most people recover without treatment in four to seven days. Children under 5, adults over 65, and immunocompromised people are at increased risk of serious illness from dehydration and may require hospitalization.
