BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you bought Skippy Peanut Butter recently, you may want to double-check your pantry.
The company is recalling jars of its Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread, Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter Spread, and Creamy Peanut Butter Spread Blended With Plant Protein because the jars could contain stainless steel fragments from a piece of manufacturing equipment. No other Skippy products are included in the recall.
Skippy announced that 9,353 cases of its product may be impacted and were sold in 18 different states, including Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut. Other states in the recall are California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin.
Customers can check to see if they bought any recalled products by verifying the UPC code on the side of the jar and the best if used by date on the lid. Recalled jars have UPC codes of 37600-10520, 37600-10667, 37600-10499, or 37600-88095 and best if used by dates of May 2023.
"We apologize to our fans for this inconvenience," the company wrote in the announcement. "Our company is committed to product quality and will continue to invest in our processes to ensure the quality and wholesomeness of our products."
Customers can exchange recalled items at the store where they purchased them. Skippy said in a statement the company notified all stores that purchased the recalled products and that there have been no consumer complaints related to the recall.
