Multiple Jif peanut butter products are being recalled due to an outbreak of salmonella. The outbreak is linked to a Lexington, Kentucky manufacturing facility. The Food and Drug Administration along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local partners are investigating the outbreak that so far spans 12 states. Currently, 14 people have reported illnesses and two of those cases have resulted in hospitalizations, according to data provided by the CDC. "Five out of five people reported consuming peanut butter and four of the five people specifically reported consuming different varieties of Jif brand peanut butter prior to becoming ill," the FDA said.
The recalled products have lot code numbers between 1274425 – 2140425 and include the numbers 425 for the 5th-7th digits. "425" in that position indicates that it was processed in the Lexington facility. If you happen to have a jar included in the recall, you should throw it away immediately.
