skippy peanut butter recall

skippy peanut butter recall


According to Oh-Yay.com, you may want to take a look in your pantry at your jars of peanut butter.

“ There is a voluntary recall of some Skippy brand peanut butter products due to a possible salmonella contamination. The following products with use by dates of May 1612LR1, May 1712LR1, May 1812LR1, May 1912LR1, May 2012LR1 or May 2112LR1 are affected by this recall”:

Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter, 16.3 oz., UPC 4800100681
Skippy Reduced Fat Super Chunk Peanut Butter, 16.3 oz., UPC 4800100678
To date, Skippy hasn’t received any reports of illness associated with consumption of this product. Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and return the product to the place of purchase.

Consumption of food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may include chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.It even gives a phone number to call: “Customers looking for additional information on the recall may call Skippy at 1-800-453-3432.”

When I read things like this, I cannot help but remember seeing an employee at the Georgia peanut butter plant, that was being interviewed on television regarding the accusations, saying, ”There was a rat dry-roasted in the peanuts!”
