The CDC reports 14 with Salmonella Senftenberg in 12 States linked to Jif peanut butter. Arkansas (1), Georgia (2), Illinois (1), Massachusetts (1), Missouri (1), Ohio (1), North Carolina (1), New York (1), South Carolina (1), Texas (2), Virginia (1), and Washington (1).
However, as the CDC says, “the true number of sick people in an outbreak is likely much higher than the number reported, and the outbreak may not be limited to the states with known illnesses. This is because many people recover without medical care and are not tested for Salmonella.”
Lot code numbers 1274425 through 2140425, with “425” at the end of the first 7 numbers.

The CDC estimates Salmonella bacteria cause about 1.35 million infections, 26,500 hospitalizations, and 420 deaths in the United States every year. Food is the source for most of these illnesses.
- Most people who get ill from Salmonella have diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.
- Symptoms usually begin 6 hours to 6 days after infection and last 4 to 7 days.
- Most people recover without specific treatment and should not take antibiotics. Antibiotics are typically used only to treat people who have severe illness or who are at risk for it.
- Some people’s illness may be so severe that they need to be hospitalized.
If you have the above symptoms, stay hydrated and seek medical attention. Ask your treating physician to order a stool culture to test to see if you have been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Senftenberg.
If you have leftover Jif, consider having a lab test it for Salmonella Senftenberg.
