Skippy Peanut Butter Recalled After Salmonella Scare

Parents, check your pantries: Skippy Reduced Fat Peanut Butter was recalled in 16 states because of possible salmonella contamination. The recall covers only 16.3-oz. plastic containers with the following information on them:

  •  UPCs (located on the side of the jar’s label below the bar code): 048001006812 and 048001006782     
  •  

  •  Best-If-Used-By Dates (stamped on the lid of the jar): MAY1612LR1, MAY1712LR1, MAY1812LR1, MAY1912LR1, MAY2012LR1 and MAY2112LR1   

Though no sicknesses have been attributed so far to the peanut butter, salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, vomitting, abdominal pain, and other symptoms. It can be particularly serious, and even fatal, in young children and the elderly.

If you own an Skippy jars that fall under the recall, throw them out. You can call the company at  1-800-453-3432 and get a coupon to buy a replacement.
