More than 160,000 pounds of its products may be contaminated with a stainless steel fragment, or fragments.
Skippy Foods is voluntarily recalling 9,353 cases, or 161,692 total pounds, of peanut butter spread because a "limited number of jars may contain a small fragment of stainless steel from a piece of manufacturing equipment."
The products include jars of Skippy's reduced-fat creamy and chunky peanut butter spreads, as well as its creamy peanut butter spread blended with plant protein. The specific jars can be identified by the "best is used by" dates stamped on top of their lids.
There have been no consumer complaints related to the recall that the Food and Drug Administration is aware of, and all retailers that received the products have been notified.
Officials for Skippy's parent company, Hormel Foods, said that one fragment of less than 2mm in size may have broken off a machine during a repair.
The products subject to the recall include:
Affected products can be returned to retailers for an exchange. Consumers also can call Skippy at 866-475-4779 or visit the company's website for instructions and information.
