Would you like any metal shavings with your peanut butter? No? Then you might want to check that jar of Skippy in your pantry. Hormel Foods, maker of the peanut butter brand, is recalling 153 cases of 16.3-ounce-sized Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter Spread because they might include "small pieces of metal shavings" thanks to an equipment malfunction, the company says in a statement. The affected cases have a "use by" date of DEC1416LR1 and a package UPC code of 37600-10500, USA Today reports. They were sold at Publix, Target, and Walmart stores, and customers can exchange them where they were purchased. (Read more Hormel Foods Corp. stories.)
