The possible presence of small metal pieces has triggered a recall of 153 cases of Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter, Hormel Foods said Friday.
Small pieces of metal shavings were discovered in a magnet check during routine cleaning, the Austin, Minn.-based company said.
The recall covers 16.3-ounce jars with a “Best if Used By” date of DEC1416LR1 with a package UPC code of 37600-10500. The code date is located on top of the lid. The recalled products were distributed to Publix, Target and Walmart stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
To date, there have been no reports of injuries, according to Hormel.
People with the recalled jars of peanut butter should return them to the place of purchase for an exchange. For more information, call Hormel at 1-866-475-4779, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central Time.
