Jif peanut butter being recalled for possible salmonella contamination has been traced to a production facility in Lexington, Ky., according to J.M. Smucker Co.

The salmonella incident has sickened some 14 consumers in 12 states, with two of them hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Smucker has issued a voluntary recall for 49 SKUs of Jif, ranging from single-serve packets to 40-oz. jars.

The FDA said in a statement that genome sequencing done on an environmental sample at the Lexington plant in 2010 matches the strain of salmonella that is causing the current outbreak: “Epidemiologic evidence indicates that Jif brand peanut butter produced in the J.M. Smucker Company facility located in Lexington, Ky., is the likely cause of illnesses in this outbreak.”
