The recall of Jif peanut butter has hit Massachusetts and we have all the nutty details.

You can't deny that no matter your age, we all crave a good PB&J sometimes. As if age, or anything, could come between us and this easy-to-make sandwich.

Over the weekend, you may have heard that several types of Jif were recalled and, well, sorry to say the rumors are true.

National Salmonella Outbreak

Massachusetts is one of 12 states that have reported salmonella poisoning cases believed to be tied to contaminated peanut butter. Other states on the list include Arkansas, Georgia, New York, Texas and Washington. And the outbreak might not be limited to those states.

So, if you are home reading this and know you have a jar of Jif, I'd recommend hopping on over to your kitchen and checking to make sure your jar is safe.

Jif has recalled jars of all sizes and brands of peanut butter that have lot code numbers ranging from 1274425 to 2140425 printed on the label.

Out of the 14 illnesses reported in association with the contamination, two people have been hospitalized.

What to Do About the Peanut Butter Recall

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that you throw away affected jars and disinfect any surfaces with which the peanut butter may have come in contact.

The symptoms of someone who may have consumed this contaminated peanut butter include dizziness, diarrhea, dehydration, and fever, according to the CDC.

Call your doctor if you have diarrhea and a fever higher than 102 degrees, diarrhea for more than three days without improvement, bloody diarrhea, difficulty keeping liquids down without vomiting or dehydration.

Is anything safe anymore? Now we are messing with one of my favorite foods. Maybe it's time I switched from Jif to Skippy.

Now the important question: Are you a crunchy or smooth peanut butter person? If you are crunchy I don't think we can be friends.
