Some jars of Skippy peanut butter may have "small pieces of metal shavings" in them, so the company has issued a recall.

According to the FDA's notice, Austin-based Hormel Foods (which owns Skippy) says the recall affects only 16.3-ounce jars of reduced fat creamy spread, with a "Best If Used By" date of DEC1416LR1 and a package UPC code of 37600-10500.

The recalled product was sent to distribution centers for Publix, Target and Wal-Mart, located in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware and Arkansas – so Minnesota stores shouldn't be affected.

No other sizes, varieties or other packaging configurations from Skippy are included in the recall. Up to this point, no consumer injuries or complaints have been reported.

A total of 153 cases, equaling 1,871 total pounds of peanut butter, are affected. The metal shavings were discovered during an "in-line magnet check during routine cleaning," the FDA notice says, noting objects larger than 7mm in length could cause severe injury.

Anyone with the product should return it to the store where they bought it for an exchange, or call Hormel Foods Customer Relations at 1-866-475-4779, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. CST.
