The Latest Food Recall: Skippy Peanut Butter


If this past weekend’s pop-up got you all riled up about peanut butter, be careful before you run out and fill up on the sandwich staple. Skippy peanut butter is being recalled in 16 states, including New York, due to possible salmonella contamination.

No illnesses have been reported in association with the potentially tainted product, according to MSNBC, but if you happen to have some Skippy in the pantry, check the UPC and best-buy dates to confirm whether you should dump it. Products packaged in a 16.3-ounce plastic jar with the UPCs 048001006812 and 048001006782 are affected, including all jars labeled best before MAY1612LR1, MAY1712LR1, MAY1812LR1, MAY1912LR1, MAY2012LR1, and MAY2112LR1.
