CBS: Candy, trail mix and other snacks made with recalled Jif peanut butter are among the growing number of products being pulled from stores and vending machines nationwide as federal health officials investigate a multi-state outbreak of salmonella.
At least 16 people from 12 states have been infected, with two hospitalized, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday in an update on the outbreak."Four of five people interviewed reported eating different types of Jif brand peanut butter before getting sick," according to the CDC.
The J.M. Smucker Co. late last week recalled multiple Jif brand peanut butter types sold across the U.S. and in Canada, including creamy, crunchy, natural and reduced fat. The outbreak strain of Salmonella Senftenberg was found in a J.M. Smucker plant in Lexington, Kentucky, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
