Smuckers recalls Natural Peanut Butter chunky in NY

The J.M. Smucker Company is recalling some 16-ounce jars of its Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter Chunky sold in New York and several other states because of possible salmonella contamination.

The Ohio-based company says 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.

Salmonella is bacteria resulting in fever, cramps and diarrhea that lasts for several days and can require hospitalization.

Smucker says no illnesses have been reported.

    Thank you for the info. I just checked the three jars in my cupboard and all are safe according to the “Best if used by date.”
