The FDA provided additional details in a series of Twitter posts, along with a link to their press release:

The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Senftenberg infections linked to certain Jif peanut butter products produced at the J.M. Smucker Company facility in Lexington, Kentucky.

CDC’s review of epidemiological information indicates that five out of five people reported consuming peanut butter and four of the five people specifically reported consuming different varieties of Jif brand peanut butter prior to becoming ill.

Consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, sell, or serve any recalled Jif brand peanut butter that have lot code numbers 1274425 – 2140425. This product has a two-year shelf life so consumers should check any Jif peanut butter in their home.

If you have used the recalled Jif peanut butter, you should wash & sanitize surfaces & utensils that could have touched the peanut butter. If you or someone in your household ate this peanut butter & have symptoms of salmonellosis, please contact your healthcare provider.

FDA’s investigation is ongoing and more information will be provided as it becomes available.

UPDATE: The affected lot code numbers are between 1274425 – 2140425, and only if the first seven digits end with 425 (manufactured in Lexington, KY).
