Unilever United States Inc. is recalling certain lots of reduced-fat Skippy peanut butter because it could be contaminated with salmonella, the company said.

So far, no one has gotten sick from eating the peanut butter, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Included in the recall are Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread and Skippy Reduced Fat Super Chunk Peanut Butter Spread.

Salmonella can cause a potentially fatal infection in young children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Normally healthy people can suffer with fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain.
