RECALL: Jif peanut butter products due to salmonella risk

The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Senftenberg infections linked to certain Jif peanut butter products produced at the JM Smucker Company facility in Lexington, Kentucky.  

CDC’s review of epidemiological information indicates that 5 out of 5 people reported consuming peanut butter and 4 of the 5 people specifically reported consuming different varieties of Jif brand peanut butter prior to becoming ill.

FDA conducted Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) analysis on an environmental sample collected at the Lexington JM Smucker Company facility in 2010. The analysis shows that this 2010 environmental sample matches the strain causing illnesses in this current outbreak. Epidemiologic evidence indicates that Jif brand peanut butter produced in the JM Smucker Company facility located in Lexington, KY, is the likely cause of illnesses in this outbreak.

The recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets.
