Smuckers is recalling jars of its Natural Peanut Butter Chunky. The problem is possible salmonella poisoning.
J.M. Smucker Co. is recalling thousands of 16-ounce jars of its Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter Chunky because of possible salmonella contamination.
The Ohio-based company said the jars covered in the recall would have been purchased in the last week or so. They have "Best if Used By" dates of Aug. 3, 2012 and Aug. 4, 2012, plus the production codes 1307004 and 1308004.
Smucker said 3,000 jars are being recalled from stores. Another 16,000 had never left warehouses. Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma are among the states where the product was distributed.
Salmonella is bacteria resulting in fever, cramps and diarrhea that lasts for several days and can require hospitalization. No illnesses have been reported.
