Company Announcement

Albanese Confectionery Group, Inc. of Merrillville, Indiana is voluntarily recalling Albanese® Mini and Giant Peanut Butter Cups because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

This recall is a direct result of the J.M. Smucker Co. Jif® Peanut Butter recall.  This product was not manufactured onsite at Albanese Confectionery Group, Inc. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The products were distributed nationwide and reached consumers through select retail stores. The products are sold in bulk bins unpackaged.

Products affected by this recall and the retailers where product was sold are listed below.
