16-ounce jars with Best-If-Used-By dates of Aug. 3. 2012, and Aug. 4, 2012, and production codes of 1307004 and 1308004 are affected. They were distributed in 24 states and Washington, D.C., according to the FDA recall notice.

The FDA posted a Nov. 16 release announcing that a limited voluntary recall is under way by the J.M. Smucker Company of 16-ounce Smucker’s® Natural Peanut Butter Chunky with two specific Best-If-Used-By dates because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. The dates are Aug. 3, 2012, and Aug. 4, 2012, and the affected jars bear production codes of 1307004 and 1308004.

The notice says they were distributed in Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

It gives this description of the affected product:

  • UPC: 5150001701 (located on the side of the jar's label below the bar code)
  • Production Codes: 1307004 and 1308004
