Recall issued for Skippy reduced-fat peanut butter sold in 16 states
 
Pulled from CNN, we do not have the reduced fat stuff in the house:

Recall issued for Skippy reduced-fat peanut butter sold in 16 states - CNN.com

The possible discovery of salmonella has prompted a limited recall of Skippy reduced-fat peanut butter spreads sold in 16 states, its parent company announced.

Unilever issued a press release Friday detailing a voluntary recall of Skippy's "Reduced Fat Creamy" and "Reduced Fat Super Chunk" brands. The recall applies only to these branded items distributed in Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

While there have been no known illnesses, the recall was issued for fear that some of the peanut butter now in stores had salmonella.

The press release said that Unilever acted after inspectors conducting "routine sampling" found that "finished products may contain the bacteria." There was no indication of where exactly the contamination was found, its severity or what steps were being taken to address it beyond the recall.

The recalled products are sold in 16.3-ounce plastic jars, have UPC codes of 048001006812 or 048001006782 and have best-if-used-by-dates of May 16-21, 2012, on the top, the company statement said. Those with such jars should throw them away and call Skippy at 1-800-453-3432 to get a replacement coupon, according to Unilever.

The Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey-based company issued the recall in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration, which posted a copy of Unilever's statement on its government website.

The words "reduced fat" always tell me that there is also "reduced flavor".....

The second I saw reduced fat I thought, "Cool, no issues then.".

Exactly my thought. I associate low/no fat with low/no flavor so I don't buy anything with those "words" on the label.
