Better check that peanut butter!

Hey, it’s Rich Dale.  Well, it’s one thing to be “metal” and another thing to ingest little pieces of steel.

Skippy Foods is recalling 161,692 pounds of peanut butter, saying some of it may have been infected by small fragments of steel from manufacturing equipment.

A statement issued Thursday by Skippy says, “From our family to yours, we want you to know that we take the quality of our products very seriously and apologize to our fans for this situation,  Our company is committed to product quality and will continue to invest in our processes to ensure the quality and wholesomeness of our products.”

The products included in the recall are Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut, Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter Spread and Creamy Peanut Butter Blended with Plant Protein. Only jars with “use by” dates of May 2023 or later are affected by the recall, according to Skippy.

Hmm, now that I see the list of products, I wonder how many River listeners are actually affected.  Thank goodness there’s no “normal” peanut butter on the list.
