SHARE Some Skippy peanut butter recalled because of metal shavings

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Hormel Foods Sales LLC is recalling 153 cases of peanut butter made at its Little Rock, Arkansas, factory because of the potential for metal shavings in the jars.

The company says 153 cases of reduced fat creamy Skippy brand peanut butter may contain small pieces of metal discovered during an in-line magnet check. The products were inadvertently shipped to Publix, Target and Wal-Mart distribution centers in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Caroline, Delaware and Arkansas.

The recall is for 16.3 ounce jars with a “Best if Used By” date of DEC1416LR1 and a UPC code of 37600-10500.

Customers can return the jars to the store where they were purchased or call 866-475-4779. Hormel said it hasn’t received any reports of injuries.
