Cargill voluntarily recalls 795, 8-ounce boxes of product containing Jif® Peanut Butter due to the potential for Salmonella contamination

Lititz, Pa. (May 23, 2022) – Cargill is voluntarily recalling select lots of Milk and Dark Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz® Crackers, Peanut Butter Meltaways, Peanut Butter Eggs and Fudge sold locally through the Wilbur Chocolate Retail Store in Lititz, Pa. and online at Wilburbuds.com. The products contain Jif® peanut butter that was recalled by the J.M. Smucker company on May 20, 2022, due to the potential for Salmonella contamination.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
