I got quite a bit of sun butter for my wife because she cannot eat peanuts. I want to repackage it into ball jars and vacuum seal it do you think there’s a chance of botulism forming in it?

I thought the same of cooking oil‘s like coconut oil unrefined olive oil‘s etc.?

my understanding is that botulism needs an aqueous situation to grow, so it won’t grow in straight oil or in nut/seed butters unless there’s been water added somewhere. inactive spores can be present in these situations, but can’t grow without water.
 
Uh oh, we're definitely being carded. Here, show him this tiny ad:
