JIF peanut butter recalled due to salmonella outbreak

A salmonella outbreak has been linked with Jif peanut butter.

Jif-branded peanut butter has been recalled at various stores across the country. Fourteen illnesses were reported due to the outbreak, with two people having to be hospitalized, all across 12 states in the country.

The CDC suggests not eating any Jif-related products if you have them, as well as check labels to see if it has been recalled. It is also suggested to wash any containers and surfaces that it may have touched, using hot and soapy water.

Also, those with lot code numbers 1274425 through 2140425 should double check to see if that specific jar doesn’t fall within those numbers.

If you have any of these symptoms, call your healthcare provider right away.
