There’s another recall you need to be on the lookout for, but this time it has nothing to do with salads. Fans of the Skippy peanut butter brand may want to rummage through their cabinets and check their jars, because the brand has voluntarily recalled over 160,000 pounds of peanut butter due to what they are calling a “potential manufacturing issue.”

According to the FDA, Skippy is recalling three different varieties of the longtime brand. Effective immediately, the recall includes Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter with best if used dates of “MAY0423” and “MAY0523”; Skippy Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter with best if used dates of “MAY0623” and “MAY0723”; and Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Blended With Plant Protein with a best used by date of “MAY1023.” The official recall notice notes that there’s a chance “a limited number of jars may contain a small fragment of stainless steel from a piece of manufacturing equipment.”

These products were bought at retailers in 18 states — California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin — and total out to be 161,692 pounds of the creamy spread. While they have noted that there have been no complaints or any dangerous results as of yet, the brand is opting to err on the side of caution for this situation.

Anyone who has one of these jars should stop consumption immediately and return it to the store you purchased it from for an exchange. You can also contact Skippy at 1-866-475-4779 or visit their website at (And yes, that’s actually their website!)
