Jif Peanut Butter / Insect Body Parts in the Jars (2)

1 Chicago area, IL, United States Review updated:

This morning I found an insect wing in the jar of peanut butter that I was feeding my children. A few weeks ago, I found what seemed to be part of a worm torso in another jar. I understand that there is a certain standard that peanut butter companies have to follow regarding insects in food manufacturing and J.M. Smucker doesn't seem to meet this standard. I am going to buy Skippy from now on no matter the cost. If you compare the two, Skippy seems to be much "cleaner" than Jif and, so far, haven't found any body parts in it as yet. FOOD CONSUMER BEWARE and if you have a jar now, make sure you spread the peanut butter really thin so you can see the parts if there are any!

    We have always bought Skippy but this time decided to give Jif a try. I was making a sandwich this morning for my daughter's lunch and found a reddish worm or earwig type thing mid way through the jar. Needless to say, we're going back to Skippy!

    Over 20 years ago, I was eating a peanut butter sandwich (made with Jif) and found a white maggot-like worm when I was about to take a bite. Needless to say, I stopped eating peanut butter for over 20 years after that discovery. However, I recently began to eat Jif again, only to find another similar maggot-like worm in my jar today. UG! I am horrified and now remember why I stopped eating Jif in the first place! I wondered if I was the only one...

    I knew you could get meal worms in flour but peanut butter?! I found three whole meal worms in a jar of Jif last night. Disgusting.
    Worse, I had eaten spoonfuls of the peanut butter late last night - no idea how many worms I ate. This was the newer (more expensive)
    Omega-3 line and I had stored it in the fridge. I have never seen this in any other peanut butter. I am never buying Jif again. Smucker's
    strawberry preserves is my favorite but, I'll be looking closer at ALL their products now.

    I also found little white worms in my Jif Creamy Peanut Butter. I make peanut butter & jelly for my kids & one night, when I opened up the jar to get the peanut butter out, I saw 2 or 3 little white worms in my peanut butter. It grossed me out a lot, so I threw away the peanut butter. I recently bought another one, yet to find another worm in there, too. I am not going to buy Jif ever again. Jif needs to do another recall for their peanut butter. I was afraid that I was being a nasty person & not doing my job around the house, but come to find out, it wasn't me. It is Jif & their company & the peanut butter. Please, please let others know this, so Jif company will go out of business & not sale their nasty peanut butter ever again. Thank you!

    Have always LOVED jiff until I ate what I pray to god was a large bug or worm but I fear it was too meaty for that, been working in food manufacturing 35 years so I know they have a serious quality control issue and a poor production process, PlEASE do not eat this product...

    Recently opened a jar of the natural creamy Jif- it was full of black worms or maggots of some sort! So gross! The jar was barely a few days old. Never eating this brand again.
