Jif peanut butter products recalled in Canada due to salmonella risk

American manufacturer J. M. Smucker Co. announced a voluntary safety recall on Saturday of 11 types of Jif products sold in Canada, including creamy, light, crunchy and dark roast creamy peanut butter.

The company, which is issuing the recall in cooperation with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, said jars with lot codes ranging from 1274425 to 2140425 should be disposed of immediately.

The Canadian recall comes after a salmonella outbreak linked to Jif peanut butter resulted in 14 people falling ill, with two hospitalizations, in the United States.

Four of five sick people reported eating different types of Jif brand peanut butter before getting sick, the CDC said. So far, no illnesses have been reported in Canada.
