    The famous condiment brand J.M. Smucker Co. is pulling 16-ounce jars of the Natural Peanut Butter Chunky off of grocery store shelves, citing a possible salmonella contamination.

    The Ohio company is recalling jars from 25 states including Illinois, as reported by the Associated Press.

    The company says jars purchased in the last week or so with "Best if Used By" dates of Aug. 3, 2012, to Aug. 2, 2012, are included in the recall. Also, any jar with production codes 1307004 and 1308004 could have possible contamination.

    Smuckers reports no bacteria-related illness as of right now. Sickness from salmonella can include fever, cramps and diarrhea that could require hospitalization.

    Illinois and the surrounding Midwestern states have all been included in the recall.
