Default SKIPPY Peanut Butter Recall

http://www.peanutbutter.com/Recall.html


UPDATE (March 10, 2011):: On March 4, 2011, Unilever United States, Inc. announced a limited recall of 16.3 oz jars of Skippy® Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread and Skippy® Reduced Fat Super Chunk Peanut Butter Spread, because it may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that 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 recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). No other Skippy® products are affected by this recall.

The product was distributed to retail outlets in Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. This recall is limited to these U.S. states; no other states or countries are affected by this recall.

The affected product, which is packaged in 16.3 oz plastic jars, is as follows:
****•********UPCs: 048001006812 and 048001006782 (located on the side of the jar’s label below the bar code.)
