Smucker’s Recalls Chunky Natural Peanut Butter

J.M. Smucker Co. recently recalled 16-ounce jars of Smucker’s  Natural Peanut Butter Chunky due to concerns about salmonella contamination.  The recall does not affect Smucker’s creamy peanut butter varieties or other Smucker’s products.

Although no illnesses have been reported to date, Smucker’s voluntarily recalled the jars of chunky peanut butter based on “a routine sampling program which revealed these finished products may contain the bacteria.”

The recalled peanut butter was sold in 24 states and Washington, D.C., including Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana, between November 8 and November 17, 2011.  The recalled jars of peanut butter carry the UPC code 5150001701, production codes of 1307004 and 1308004, and “best-if-used-by" dates of August 3, 2012 and August 4, 2012.

If you have one of these jars of peanut butter, you should dispose of the product in a way that ensures that it will not be consumed by pets or other people.  You may call Smucker's at 888-550-9555 to receive a replacement coupon, and a proof of purchase may be necessary.

Symptoms of Salmonella

By some estimates, there are approximately 40,000 cases of salmonella in the United States each year.  Salmonella infections usually cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within 12 to 72 hours after consuming contaminated food, with symptoms lasting four to seven days. Most people recover fully without any treatment, but in some cases salmonella infections can cause serious, and possibly fatal, reactions.  In some cases, salmonella bacteria can enter the blood stream and spread to other areas of the body.

Young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are the particularly vulnerable to salmonella infection.

If your or a loved one has suffered from salmonella infection, you may wish to contact the experienced Illinois product liability attorneys at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish to learn about a possible personal injury or product liability claim.
