Recall Alert: Protein Power Snack
More products are being recalled due the potential salmonella contamination of JIF peanut butter.
F&S Produce Co of Vineland, NJ is recalling a limited quantity of Protein Power Snack, because it contains a cup of 0.75oz JIF peanut butter.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Protein Power Snack was distributed at U.S. Walgreens stores in NJ and NY.
The product has since been pulled from the shelves and is currently past the expiration date. The last lot of the affected product had a code date of “Best By: 05/28/22” which can be located on the front label.
No illnesses have been reported to date from this product. However, the peanut butter used to make this product has illnesses associated with it.
Anyone who bought the product is urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
