The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that additional products are being impacted by a nationwide peanut butter recall.
According to federal health agents, the original J.M. Smucker peanut butter recall also impacts products such as protein power snacks, baked goods, and others. At least 18 other companies have issued their own recalls following the original peanut butter recall campaign.
Partnering with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), FDA officials are investigating the defective products and Salmonella outbreaks associated with the products. Originally, infections linked to Jif peanut butter products were tied to samples that tested positive for the same strains of bacteria found on most of those who fell ill. Victims told officials they had consumed the product prior to falling ill.
