The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced an expanded recall on Jif peanut butter products Wednesday.

Following the J.M. Smucker Co.’s initial voluntary recall on May 20, several other companies released statements recalling products containing Jif peanut butter. The recall is in response to reports of salmonella cases that are potentially connected to Jif products.

This latest round of recalls includes items that are made with Jif peanut butter or include prepackaged snack-sized cups of the product, such as fruit and vegetable snack trays.

Each company released information about specific lot numbers, available through the FDA’s recall website.
