Salmonella infections in otherwise healthy persons can cause symptoms such as fever, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and discomfort in the abdominal region.
The peanut butter that was later found to be defective was sold in retail shops and other outlets throughout the country. The following goods with the lot numbers 1274425–2140425 are among those that have been recalled. Dates that are “best if utilized by” are often accompanied with lot codes.

Since its introduction in 1956, the Jif peanut butter brand has become an American staple in homes throughout the country. The conclusions of the research indicated that 117.31 million individuals used Jif in the year 2020. Jif has expanded its product line to include almond butter and hazelnut spread in order to maintain its position as a market leader.
According to the corporation, they are unaware of the financial effect that this recall would have on the brand.
According to the statement made by the corporation, “based on the facts available to date, we are unable to predict the financial effect of the recall either on our fiscal year that concluded on April 30, 2022, or on our current fiscal year 2023.” “Additional details will be sent by us as quickly as is humanly practicable.”
