Skippy Peanut Butter Recalled Due to Potential Metal Shavings

Love the creamy, buttery goodness of peanut butter? Most people do! But you might want to think twice before purchasing some from this brand. Peanut butter recalled due to possibly metal shavings. Hormel Foods announced in a press release Thursday that 153 cases of Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter are currently being recalled due to the concern that there may be metal shavings contaminating them.
"Foodborne objects that are greater than 7mm in length may cause injury such as severe choking with airway obstruction, gastrointestinal peroration or secondary infection," the company said in the press release. The recall isn't happening everywhere, however. The recall is taking place in Publix, Target, and Walmart stores within the states of Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, and Arkansas. Hormel said that no reports have been received in regards to either complaints or injuries. It's important to note that the recall is specific to 16.3-oz jars with a "Best If Used By" date of DEC1416LR1 and a package UPC code of 37600-10500. Have you purchased this specific recall item?
