Americans are being cautioned against eat a range of baked goods, sandwiches, candy and trail mix made with recalled Jif peanut butter as a growing number of snacks are pulled from stores and vending machines nationwide amid a multi-state outbreak of salmonella.

That lately includes a recall of Rich’s chocolate peanut butter cups sold at nearly 200 candy and ice cream shops nationwide between November 11, 2021, and January 23, 2022.

At least 16 people from 12 states have been infected, with two hospitalized, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday in an update on the outbreak. Five out of five people reported eating peanut butter and four of the five reported eating Jif before becoming ill, according to the CDC’s review of epidemiological information.

The J.M. Smucker Co. on May 20 recalled multiple Jif brand peanut butter types sold across the U.S. and in Canada, including creamy, crunchy, natural and reduced fat. The outbreak strain of Salmonella Senftenberg was found in a J.M. Smucker plant in Lexington, Kentucky, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

If you or a loved one has suffered losses due to ingesting a Jif product, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more, contact the trusted attorneys at Breslin and Breslin today.
