FDA warns consumers to not eat certain Jif peanut butter because of Salmonella outbreak

Federal officials are recommending that the public not consume any of dozens of Jif brand peanut butter products because of a new outbreak of infections from Salmonella Senftenberg.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are reporting 14 patients across 12 states with two people having been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported as of today.

The outbreak strain of Salmonella Senftenberg was found in the J.M. Smucker Company’s production facility in Lexington, KY, according to the Food and Drug Administration. 

“The analysis shows that this 2010 environmental sample matches the strain causing illnesses in this current outbreak. Epidemiologic evidence indicates that Jif brand peanut butter produced in the J.M. Smucker Company facility located in Lexington, KY, is the likely cause of illnesses in this outbreak,” according to the public alert issues today by the Food and Drug Administration.

The CDC has not yet posted specific patient details such as when the people became sick or their ages. The agency has been interviewing patients and so far five out of five interviewed reported eating peanut butter in the says before becoming ill Four of those patients reported eating Jif brand peanut butter.

There is great concern that consumers may have unused portions of the implicated peanut butter in their homes. The J.M. Smucker Company, which produces Jif brand peanut butter, has recalled dozens of products, but date codes for the products are not included in the recall information.
