A possible salmonella contamination is the reason JM Smucker Co. announced Saturday a voluntary recall of select JIF products sold in Canada.
The recall includes several different sizes and flavors of peanut butter, including creamy, crispy, and creamy dark roast. The brand says the recall is being carried out in partnership with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
This comes after a similar recall south of the border was announced a day earlier.
The product lot code range for the affected products, the company says online, is 1274425 – 2140425. Consumers are being told to remove the products immediately if they have the listed products in their possession, which it adds can be found at your packaging.
“Healthy people infected with Salmonella should be monitored for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever,” the company says in a statement, “On rare occasions, Salmonella can cause more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.”
It also tells those who have purchased the products showing these signs after contact with the product to contact their health care providers.
Consumers with questions or who would like to report reactions they are also asked to contact the company.
