Research – Jif Peanut Butter Recall: Make Sure Your Dog’s Favorite Snack Isn’t Tainted With Salmonella

Daily Paws

Some dogs love peanut butter more than we do, so make sure your stash isn’t one of the products potentially contaminated with salmonella.

You probably need to check that jar of peanut butter in your cupboard—both for you and your dog.

On Friday, The J.M. Smucker Company issued a wide recall of its Jif peanut butter products because of potential salmonella contamination. If that’s the brand you like to share with your dog—heck, maybe the peanut butter is only for your dog—you’ll want to make sure you dispose of any potentially tainted spread.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has attributed 14 human illnesses—including two hospitalizations—in 12 states to the salmonella outbreak. The FDA traced its origins to the Smucker Company’s manufacturing facility in Lexington, Ky.

The recalled Jif products were sold in stores nationwide and in Canada, the Dominican Republic, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Honduras, Spain, and Japan. You can check the list at the bottom of this article to see which products were specifically recalled.

Anyone with recalled Jif in their homes should obviously not let anyone consume it and throw it away. If the peanut butter has touched anything, including your hands, you should sanitize those areas immediately. And keep in mind: Other companies have recalled products that contain Jif peanut butter, and you can find that list here
