EDITOR’S NOTE: You can read our coverage of the May 2022 Jif Peanut Butter Recall here.
On March 30, 2022, Skippy Foods, LLC, a division of Hormel, announced a major recall of peanut butter products. The recall, involving more than 9,000 cases and more than 160,000 pounds of peanut butter, was triggered by concerns that the peanut butter might contain fragments of stainless steel from manufacturing equipment. The recall affects a specific range of codes and best-if-used-by dates.
Aldi and Trader Joe’s are not affected by this recall. Aldi makes no mention of the recall on its recall page, and Trader Joe’s likewise makes no mention of the recall on its recall page. Both companies contract their products from outside companies, so it’s always possible a major brand recall could affect one of them, as it has in the past. That is not the case here.
The recall affects Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread, Skippy Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter Spread, and Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Blended. You can find more information about the recall here, including affected states and what to look for on Skippy products.
