The popular brand of peanut butter, Skippy, has issued a recall of its reduced fat versions of peanut butter because they were found to contain salmonella. The recall was issued in many states, including Wisconsin.
The salmonella was detected during a sampling of the peanut butter. The FDA has stated that there have been no reports of illnesses, however, anyone who has the reduced fat peanut butter should return it or throw it away immediately.
Salmonella is a bacteria that includes symptoms of fever and diarrhea, and, in some cases, can be life-threatening.
If you or someone you love has suffered an illness caused by a food product contaminated with salmonella, please contact the Stevens Point defective food products attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. at 800-242-2874.
