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.

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