CASPER, Wyo. — The Food and Drug Administration is investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Senftenberg infections linked to certain Jif peanut butter products produced at the J.M. Smucker Company facility in Lexington, Kentucky.  

The company says the recalled peanut butter was distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets. Recalled products include those listed here with lot codes 1274425 – 2140425.

The FDA has not recorded any illnesses in Wyoming. There have been 14 recorded illnesses with two hospitalizations in the U.S., the FDA said.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, the FDA said. It can be fatal to young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
