(NEXSTAR) – Nearly 162,000 pounds of certain Skippy peanut butter products are voluntarily recalled because some jars may contain small stainless steel fragments.
Skippy Foods announced the recall late Wednesday, saying approximately 9,350 cases of three products with specific code dates are affected. The stainless steel fragments come from manufacturing equipment.

The company says the recalled peanut butters were sent to 18 states: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma. , and Wisconsin.
