Kellogg Company announced Thursday it has put a hold on many Austin® and Keebler® branded snack crackers due to a recent peanut butter recall.
The following crackers have been affected: Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Crackers, Cheese and Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, and Peanut Butter-Chocolate Sandwich Crackers.
Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) recalled their peanut butter due a Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter. PCA is one of several peanut paste suppliers that the company uses in its Austin® and Keebler® branded peanut butter sandwich crackers.
Kellogg Company's investigation has not indicated any concerns or consumer illnesses. However, they are putting a hold on any inventory, removing products from retail store shelves and encouraging customers not eat these products until the FDA rules they are safe.
"Consumer health and safety is our top priority," said David Mackay, president and CEO, Kellogg Company. "We are taking these voluntary actions out of an abundance of caution."
