Does Your Peanut Butter Have Salmonella? Updated 05.25.22

I was snacking on peanut butter when I read this:

Recalled Food -Jif brand peanut butter

Sold at stores nationwide. Many types and sizes were recalled, including creamy, crunchy, natural, and reduced fat.

Lot code numbers 1274425 through 2140425. Four of five (80%) sick people reported eating different types of Jif brand peanut butter before getting sick.

So I checked my jar and it looks like this:

My lot numbers were OK though. Plus half the jar has been eaten already and I feel fine.

For now.

It appears Jif is everywhere.

  1. I rechecked my jars of peanut butter after having read an article in the newspaper that demonstrated how to read the code. I do indeed have one jar that could have salmonella. It is unopened. Do I take it back to the store where I purchased it? It was probably six months ago, so I don’t have any receipt.
