Gas Station Snacks Included in Jif Peanut Butter Recall
On May 20, 2022, Jif recalled a range of its products due to Salmonella contamination. Initially, this recall was constrained to their peanut butter products. However, the recall expanded later to include several gas station snacks that used Jif peanut butter.
Gas Station Snacks Involved in the Recall
The Jif recall impacted numerous gas station snacks. A few notable examples include:
- Rich’s peanut butter cups
- Euphoria Chocolate Company chocolate candy with peanut butter
- Fudgeamentals peanut butter bars
- Coblentz Chocolate Company peanut butter products
- Deskin Candies peanut butter pinwheel
This is not a complete list of gas station snacks involved in the recall. Jif has an online list of their recalled products. Jif states that they will provide “appropriate reimbursement” to those who fill out their recall form. Searching “peanut butter” on the FDA’s online recall site will provide you with a list of the remaining recalled products.
What Should I Do if I Have a Recalled Product?
If you think you have a recalled product, first check it with an online recall list. If the product is recalled, dispose of the product immediately. If you or a loved one has already consumed the product, monitor yourself closely for symptoms of Salmonella poisoning.

Salmonella Poisoning Symptoms
Luckily, Salmonella typically only poses a serious risk to the elderly, the immunocompromised, and children. Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning in healthy groups include:
- Abdominal pain
In rare cases, Salmonella poisoning can cause endocarditis, arthritis, and arterial infections. If you believe that you’re suffering from a severe case of Salmonella poisoning, seek medical attention immediately.
Can I File a Lawsuit if I Purchased a Recalled Jif Product?
It depends on the facts of your case. Several law firms are preparing class-action lawsuits against Jif’s parent group, The J.M. Smucker Company. This type of lawsuit typically takes months or years to process, so it could take some time before the option to join the lawsuit is available. A Jif peanut butter recall lawyer can advise you on joining a class action lawsuit.
What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?
Class action lawsuits are led by a single plaintiff. First, the plaintiff in these cases makes their case known to whomever they’re planning to sue. Then, members of the class (people who were harmed in the same way) can join the lawsuit. If the lead plaintiff wins the case, each member of the class will receive compensation. The amount of compensation each member of the class receives can vary.
Class action lawsuits have several benefits, including:
- They’re typically less expensive than other legal options
- They allow multiple plaintiffs to work together
- They’re easier to participate in than standard lawsuits
- Only a small number of plaintiffs need to appear in court

How Can a Lawyer Help?

How Much Does It Cost To Join a Class-Action Lawsuit?
Typically, it costs nothing to join a class-action lawsuit. This is because class-action lawsuits often operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that the law firm’s payment is contingent on them winning the case. If they don’t win the case, they don’t get paid.
If the law firm wins the case, the settlement is split between:
- Lead plaintiffs
- Other participants
- The law firm
Contingency fees allow anyone to participate in a class-action lawsuit, regardless of their financial status.
