Well, I have some bad news.

Jif just announced a voluntary recall after a salmonella outbreak that has hit 12 states, sickening 14 people.

So far, two folks have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported, thank goodness. 

The FDA announced the voluntary recall today in a statement noting the dangers of salmonella. 

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis,” the FDA wrote

The peanut butter in question was distributed across the country in retail stores and other outlets. It is critical that anyone who purchased Jif recently look at the lot code, which is usually near the expiration or best used by date. The affected lot codes are 1274425 – 2140425.
