161,692 Pounds of Peanut Butter Recalled

(RightWing.org) – Fears that metal shavings may contaminate over 80 tons of peanut butter has prompted a recall. Skippy Foods is warning anyone who’s purchased several of its products to return them for exchange. Are you at risk?

On March 30, the Food and Drug Administration announced Skippy Foods LLC, a Hormel subsidiary, issued a voluntary recall of more than 9,300 cases of peanut butter. The FDA says there’s a possibility some of the jars could contain tiny pieces of “stainless steel” believed to have broken off a machine in the factory.

The recall only affects some products packaged in the space of a few days. The recalled products are:

  • The 40 ounce jars of Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter, dated best before May 04, 2023 and May 05, 2023
  • The two-pack 40 ounce jars, club-size of Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter – Club, dated best before May 05,2023
  • The 16.3 ounce jars of Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter, dated best before May 06, 2023 and May 07, 2023
  • The 14 ounce jars of Creamy Peanut Butter Blended With Plant Protein, dated best before May 10, 2023.

Skippy says anyone who has bought affected products should take them back to the retailer where they bought them and exchange them for an unaffected one.

This isn’t the first time metal contamination has affected Skippy peanut butter. In October 2015 the company recalled 153 cases of reduced fat creamy peanut butter after finding metal in several jars.
