WASHINGTON, D.C. (KARE 11) — Recently purchase a jar of Jif peanut butter? Double-check the label: it might be involved in a recent recall.

On Saturday, J.M. Smucker issued a voluntary recall for over 40 varieties of Jif products due to potential salmonella contamination. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA. Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Recalled products include the products below with lot codes 1274425 – 2140425. Lot codes are included alongside best-if-used-by date.

The following varieties are included in the recall. Double-check with this table from the FDA to see if your purchased peanut butter has been recalled.
