The list of products that contain that are being recalled because the contain previously recalled Jif peanut butter gets longer by the day. The recalled Jif may be contaminated with salmonella, which is potentially deadly to children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
As of Tuesday afternoon, there were at least 15 recalls listed on the Food and Drug Administration website, not including the Jif recall on May 20 that started it all. And it’s likely that these won’t be the last.
The list includes a number of snack packs that contain cups of Jif peanut butter for dipping or spreading and candies that contain Jif.
Some of these recalls were nationwide while some were in specific states, including Oregon.
