We have 5 jars here at the house. All have the same recalled a number (5150025518).

I've been eating from one of them.

Food Ingredient Drink Wood stain Cuisine



The Jif web site lists the recalled UPC numbers and says:
---------------------
Consumers who have impacted product should immediately dispose of the product.

Consumers who have questions or would like to report adverse reactions should visit www.jif.com/contact-us or call 800-828-9980 Monday-Friday, 8AM-5PM EST.

Our teams are coordinating a thorough investigation into this matter in collaboration with the FDA to determine appropriate steps.

Again, we apologize for the concern this will create. Please know our number one priority is to deliver safe, quality products to our consumers. When there is any potential issue we act swiftly, as we have in this instance.

---------------------

They do NOT say to return it to the store, but I am told that most stores will refund you or replace it..

Of course the company says throw it away. A huge percentage of those with these products will do just that.

I'm sure they will refund those that return it. But their liability will be greatly reduced by those that just follow instructions.

I have a jar of the affected peanut butter too, but not reduced fat.

When Con-Agra had a recall earlier this year, they offered a refund. I sent a message to J. M. Smuckers about getting a refund but since I sent it today I haven't heard back yet. When I went to the store today the only brands available were Great Value, Peter Pan, JIF, and a few odd small manufacturer brands. Most of the peanut butter shelves were empty. I bought a jar of Peter Pan since my daughter wants to make peanut butter cookies this week.

My Google is saying a different number than that.

1274425

And

2140425


I checked 3 different articles on that so I hope mine isnt the wrong one.

You have to check the bar code and the batch number.

"Recalled products include the products below with lot codes 1274425 – 2140425. Lot codes are included alongside best-if-used-by date."

This is the bar code/upc number on all jars of 16 oz creamy, reduced fat peanut butter. 5150025518.

Apparently I copied the wrong UPC number and didn't double check it. It has been corrected.

What is the "batch number" or "lot code"?

But, no.

UPC 5150024141 is the UPC for "1.5 oz CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER TO GO" not the 16-oz. creamy reduced fat.

The 16-oz. creamy reduced fat UPC number is 5150025518. That's what I have.

What is the "batch number" or "lot code"?

But, no.

UPC 5150024141 is the UPC for "1.5 oz CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER TO GO" not the 16-oz. creamy reduced fat.

The 16-oz. creamy reduced fat UPC number is 5150025518. That's what I have.

Oops, I must have skipped a line when typing last night.

The batch number is the number on the label right under the "best by date". Only certain batches are affected.

Thanks. All 5 jars of mine are in the recalled lot numbers as well as the bar code. It's really 4-1/2 jars. I've been eating from 1 of the jars.

I finished 1 jar about a week ago and it was most likely in the recall, too.

I've had no sign of illness.

Does heating something kill salmonella? I researched it a bit and got mixed information on it.

When the panic buyers clear out the peanut butter, you can still usually find the powdered version. The mobs don't seem to know about that.

There was plenty of powdered peanut butter. I got the one jar I wanted. I could have done without, I'm not that fond of it.

You can kill salmonella by heating it but they say you shouldn't risk it.

FYI: Walmart will NOT refund or replace the recalled Jif peanut butter---unless you have the receipt and it has been less than 24 hours since you bought it.

In fact, the black female (not that it matters) employee I spoke with was EXTREMELY annoyed that I even asked.

And, by the way, they have not removed the recalled Jif peanut butter from the Walmart store shelves in the town where I live.

They had some Jif on the shelf. I assumed that it was not on the recall list. Boy was I naive. The self-checkout register would not ring it up.

They had removed the item from their computer, but left it on the shelf.
