Skippy is recalling 160,000 pounds of peanut butter over potential metal fragments.
In a new release issued Wednesday, the Food and Drug Administration said that Skippy foods are voluntarily recalling 9,353 cases of Skippy peanut butter, the equivalent of 161,692 pounds. The FDA said that the three varieties being recalled are Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Blended With Plant Protein, Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread and Skippy Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter Spread. Consumers should lookout for a “Best If Used By” date of May 2023 on the recalled products.
All three kinds of peanut butter are being recalled “out of an abundance of caution” as a small number of jars may contain “a small fragment of stainless steel from a piece of manufacturing equipment.” The problem was identified by the manufacturing plant’s internal systems, the statement said.
“There have been no consumer complaints associated with this recall to date, and all retailers that received the affected product have been properly notified,” the FDA added. Now, the FDA is encouraging consumers who bought any of the new-recalled nut butter to either contact Skippy Foods Consumer Engagement or bring the item back to the store where they bought it for an exchange. No other flavors or kinds of Skippy peanut butter are included in the recall, the FDA stated.
