Jif Peanut Butter Recalled Due to Salmonella Contamination – New York Daily News

It is not a quiet period for Jif.

Jars of Jif peanut butter have been recalled across the country after salmonella was detected in several products, the Food and Drug Administration said in a news release on Friday.

The exact product list is available on the FDA website. All of the recalled peanut butter was produced at a facility in Lexington, Ky., NPR reported.

The salmonella outbreak has been detected in 12 states and at least 14 people have become ill. Two people were hospitalized.

Older people and people who are immunocompromised are at higher risk of getting seriously ill or even dying from salmonella. Most healthy people can expect “fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain,” the FDA said.

The states that have reported cases of salmonella are Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina, New York, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.
