ORRVILLE, Ohio (AP) - J.M. Smucker Co. is recalling thousands of
16-ounce jars of its Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter Chunky because of possible salmonella contamination.

The Ohio-based company says the jars covered in the recall would

Used By" dates of Aug. 3, 2012 and Aug. 4, 2012, plus the
production codes 1307004 and 1308004.

Smucker says 3,000 jars are being recalled from stores. Another
16,000 had never left warehouses.

that lasts for several days and can require hospitalization.

Smucker says no illnesses have been reported.

The product was distributed in: Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland,
Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York,
North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas,
