Limited Recall of Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter Chunky

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
  • Best-If-Used-By dates: August 3, 2012 and August 4, 2012
  • Chunky product only (not creamy)
  • Impacted product would have been purchased between November 8-17, 2011

No other products of The J.M. Smucker Company are affected by the recall, and no illnesses have been reported. The notice says the product "is being recalled out of an abundance of caution for consumer safety," and the recall "was initiated as the result of a routine sampling program by the company, which revealed that these finished products may contain the bacteria."
