Five more recalls were shared by the FDA in connection with a recall of Jif peanut butter due to salmonella.
On May 20, Jif announced a significant peanut butter recall due to salmonella contamination that sickened at least 14 people and hospitalized two.
That initial recall included 49 different products. Though the amount of peanut butter recalled isn't clear, as Jif did not respond to a request for comment from Thrillist. On May 23 and 24, the Food and Drug Administration issued five new recalls, all of which are linked to Jif.
Country Fresh, whose notice impacts 19 states, has recalled fresh-cut fruit snack trays and fruit snack cups that contain Jif peanut butter. Because salmonella can transfer between surfaces, it is not safe to eat the fruit or peanut butter in the containers.
Those trays and cups were distributed to stores in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, DC, and West Virginia. Country Fresh says its products are not connected to the reported salmonella cases. You can see a list of products on the FDA recall page.
