If your Skippy Peanut Butter has an extra crunch, be careful. On Thursday, Skippy Foods announced the recall of more than 9,000 cases of peanut butter after a manufacturing plant’s internal detection system identified the possibility that “a small fragment of stainless steel from a manufacture” is mixed with several varieties of their peanut. Butter. So far, there have been no reports of customer concern or illness related to the incident.

The varieties included are Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread, Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread, and Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter Blended with Plant Protein.

In a statement released by Skippy, the company said, “Skippy Foods, LLC, out of an abundance of caution and an emphasis on the quality of its products, is issuing the recall to ensure consumers are made aware of the issue. The manufacturing plant’s internal detection systems identified the problem.”

These are the only varieties included in the recall, and the batch can be identified by its “Best if Used By” date ranging around May 2023, with details included on the recall website. If you own one of the affected jars, you can return it to the retailer you purchased it from for an exchange, or contact Skippy Customer Service.
