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.Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Peanut Butter — https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/senftenberg-05-22/index.html

Last September, the FDA issued a news release cautioning that homeopathic teething tablets and gels may be harmful to babies and children, and issued a strong recommendation to not use them.
