The affected Jif brand peanut butter products were part of a shipment with the lot code numbers between 1274425 – 2140425. The only products affected by the recall have the first seven digits ending with 425 which means it was made in Lexington, Kentucky.

The product has a shelf life of two years, so the CDC and FDA recommend checking all the Jif peanut butter items that you have in stock at your home or business.

If you have used the recalled Jif brand peanut butter that has lot code numbers 1274425 through 2140425 and the first seven digits end with 425, you should wash and sanitize surfaces and utensils that could have touched the peanut butter. If you or someone in your household ate this peanut butter and show symptoms of salmonella, contact your doctor.

If you didn't use the products, J.M Smucker Company has created a website where you can apply for a refund for the products that you had to throw away.

You can fill out this form and the company will contact you about a refund or voucher for a new product. CLICK HERE
