Skippy Peanut Butter Recall Due to Salmonella

Today, Saturday March 5, 2011, Unilever United States, Inc announced Skippy Peanut Butter recall affecting 16 states, due to the possible contamination of salmonella. The Skippy brands affected are Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread and Skippy Reduced Fat Super Chunk Peanut Butter Spread. They said they “may” contain the organism, which may cause death in small children and the elderly.

The affected Skippy Peanut Butter states are Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. If you live in one of these states, put that knife (or spoon) down right now! If you have one of these affected products and live in one of these states, you are urged by the company to throw the product in the garbage and call the company at 1-800-453-3432 to request a replacement coupon.

It sounds odd that they don’t have consumers bring the product back to a store to prove they actually had the product. I predict there will be a lot of people not affected by the Skippy Peanut Butter recall calling in for a free jar of Skippy Peanut Butter. Excuse me, I need to make a phone call……

Rumor has it Skippy is considering updating their old slogan “For good nutrition, its hard to beat Skippy” to “For an extended hospital emergency stay, it’s hard to beat Skippy”.
