Check your pantry! If you have Jif peanut butter products, you may need to throw them out.

The J.M. Smucker Co. issued a recall Friday for some of its Jif peanut butter products sold across U.S. retail stores due to possible salmonella contamination.

The recalled products have lot codes 1274425-2140425, which can be found by the “best if used by” date.

Salmonella can be serious or sometimes fatal for children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems, according to a news release.

Symptoms include fever, diarrhea (which can be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Salmonella can sometimes lead to more severe illnesses as well, such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis, officials said.
