FOOD RECALL! Jif Peanut Butter! Possible Salmonella! (Tip via David Drake)


I just finished off this jar and was going to grab another from the larder to put in the fridge when I read about the recall over at Drake's Place.  Peanut butter is very high on my list of essential foods; toss a jar in your backpack and you'll eat well for good long time.  Unopened, it has a shelf-life well past the best-by date on the label.  Once opened it keeps well inside the fridge.  As a staple and / or a survival food, it is hard to beat.  Anyhoo, I keep a goodly supply of grub and needed to find out if any of my peanut butter is on the recall list (which, as of this writing, is still incomplete so I'll need to review everything again later).

Some items are not suitable for storage on basement shelves so I use stacking crates.
(NOTE:  See the Saltine Crackers in the crate?  Good luck finding those anywhere nowadays.)

(Below has been edited since originally posted)
None of what I have  That was a bad mistake. The one in the above photo IS on the current recall list!  GLEEP!  I'm heading back downstairs now to recheck everything.  They changed the way they marked them soooooo it is a bit hard to figure out ...

OKAY!  TWO of the eleven jars of peanut butter in our inventory (the latest two jars that I purchased, which was in March of this year) ARE on the recall list.  


The other NINE jars of peanut butter in our inventory are (for now) NOT on any recall list.

Why do I carry so much chow?  Well, I've known what it is like to be hungry.  During my lifetime I've known the store shelves to go bare for many different reasons.  I've had the knock on the door and the phone calls from family and neighbors when times get tough and I'll only turn folks away if there is nothing left to share.  All any of us can do is the best that we can and I've always been pretty darn good at getting by.

Prepare for the worst and pray for the best!  
It ain't all about having enough guns and ammo.

Thanks for the mention and the link. I too love JIF PB. Was at the store this AM and buying it and the checkout person said there was a recall. ARRRRRGHGHGHGHGHGH!!!! I also read somewhere that after you open a jar of PB, store it upside down. I'm only guessing, but maybe so to prevent the air from getting to the oils and being a contaminant? I dunno. I'm blaming Biden for this and everything else. Never had any issues with PB when Trump was President. :)

Take care Zack!

Thanks man! If it wasn't for you I would not have heard about the recall. I've had food poisoning more than a couple of times during my long lifetime and I really would prefer not to surf that wave again ;)
