The company, which is issuing the recall in cooperation with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, said jars with lot codes ranging from 1274425 to 2140425 should be disposed of immediately.
The Canadian recall comes after a salmonella outbreak linked to Jif peanut butter resulted in 14 people falling ill, with two hospitalizations, in the United States.
The U.S. salmonella cases were reported in 12 states, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.
Four of five sick people reported eating different types of Jif brand peanut butter before getting sick, the CDC said. So far, no illnesses have been reported in Canada.
The U.S. recall issued Friday includes roughly 50 Jif peanut butter products.
