A salmonella outbreak spanning across the U.S. was linked to Jif peanut butter in late May, leading to a nationwide recall of several products associated with the popular brand.

Now, the outbreak has reached 12 different states, causing 16 cases of salmonella poisoning and two hospitalizations, according to an update on the active investigation from the CDC.

The list of products that contain or could have come in contact with the peanut butter has now expanded to include some items most shoppers wouldn’t expect.

Jif customers are encouraged to check their jars of peanut butter for lot codes 1274425 to 2140425. However, what some may neglect to realize is that it’s not just the jars you have to watch out for.

The full list of products being recalled has grown so long that the FDA has created a separate page on its website specifically for tracking outbreak-linked products. Here are eight of those brands that you may not have known are included.
