Some Jif peanut butter products recalled in US and Canada due to Salmonella contamination

J. M. Smucker Co. is requesting it’s consumers and trying to recall some of Jif peanut butter products sold across US and Canada because of potential Salmonella contamination.

The company based in Orrville, Ohio on Saturday stated that they will recall some of its popular brand of peanut butter products to Canada. A similar such recall they have already announced in the US just a day ago. Consumers that have various crunchy, creamy and squeeze products should dispose of them immediately, the company said.

Expanding and giving details on the contamination, Salmonella is a bacterial disease that causes fever, diarrhea and vomiting and the company J. M. Smucker Co is coordinating with the Food and Drug Administration on their efforts to recall the products. The financial impact isn’t yet known and the company said in its statement Friday it will provide additional information as soon as possible.

J.M. Smucker recorded net sales of $2.06 billion in the quarter ended Jan. 31, with peanut butter and other consumer foods accounting for about a fifth of revenue. Sales of Jif, along with its Smucker’s fruit spreads, and Uncrustables frozen sandwiches, got a boost during the pandemic because of at-home food consumption, though its consumer foods division lags in sales compared to its retail pet food and coffee segments.
