Kellogg’s recalls snacks, cookies due to undeclared peanut residue

The FDA reported Monday that the Kellogg Company is voluntarily recalling certain varieties and limited dates of production of Mother’s, Keebler, Kellogg’s Special K brownies, Murray and Famous Amos snacks and cookies because they may contain undeclared peanut residue.

Kellogg initiated the recall after its supplier, Grain Craft, recalled wheat flour that has the potential to contain low levels of peanut residue.

While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. The company has received no reports of related illness to date and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

The following products were distributed throughout the United States and Puerto Rico:

kellogg recall-1

kellogg recall-2

kellogg recall-3

kellogg recall-4

kellogg recall-5

kellogg recall-6

kellogg recall-7

Kellogg is asking that people who purchased any of these products to discard it and contact the company for a full refund. Consumers can call 1-800-962-1413, Monday through Friday, 3 a.m. – noon Hawaii time or by visiting https://www.kelloggs.com/en_US/contact-us.html.
