St. Louis, May 23, 2022 - In response to a voluntary recall of multiple Jif products by The J. M. Smucker Co. due to the possible contamination with Salmonella, Dierbergs Markets has removed all affected products from its shelves.
The recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets. For a full list of all the products involved, including UPCs and lot codes, please see the recall notice on Jif's website.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Consumers who have questions, would like to request reimbursement or would like to report adverse reactions should visit www.jif.com/contact-us or call 800-828-9980 Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM ET. Those with the affected product in their possession should dispose of it immediately.
