What to Know About the Skippy Peanut Butter Recall

A jar of peanut butter sits next to peanuts and a spoon.

If you recently purchased a jar of Skippy peanut butter, you might want to head to your pantry. There’s been a recall.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, Skippy has issued a voluntary recall on four iterations of its peanut butter.

The recall was issued due to the potential for small pieces of stainless steel to be inside the product due to manufacturing equipment. The recall was issued on March 30 and includes the following peanut butter types with these best by dates:

  • Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter, 40oz: Best by date of May 4, 2023, and May 5, 2023
  • Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter — Club, 2/40oz: Best by date of May 5, 2023
  • Skippy Reduced Fat Chunky Peanut Butter, 16.3oz: Best by date of May 6, 2023, and May 7, 2023
  • Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Blended With Plant Protein, 14oz: Best by date of May 10, 2023.

As of press time, 18 states have been identified as having sold the peanut butter: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin.

If you discover the peanut butter in your pantry, the FDA recommends returning it to your retailer for an exchange or calling the Skippy Foods Consumer Engagement number at 1-866-475-4779. The line is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT. You can also visit peanutbutter.com for further instructions.

If you end up needing to return your Skippy, you can always attempt to make your own nut butter (and save some cash).
