WAWA, Pennsylvania— Wawa has removed two products containing Jif Peanut Butter from all of its convenience stores due to a voluntary recall issued by JM Smucker on certain items sold in the United States and Canada.

The recall was based on potential Salmonella contamination and is being conducted in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Wawa stores sold two of the items:

  • Wawa 4.9 oz Apple and Peanut Butter Dipper (all codes at all Wawa stores).
  • Jif 16 ounce creamy peanut butter (UPC: 00051500255162, lot codes: 1274425-2140425).

The full line of recalled products, distributed nationwide in retail stores and other outlets, carry lot codes 1274425-2140425, which can be found next to the expiration date. Products with these lot codes should be disposed of immediately.
