It seems like there have been several food recalls recently. Kellogg is joining the ranks by issuing a recall on certain snacks that the company produces. Some of the snacks and cookies made in Georgia could contain peanut products. The products are from a line made with wheat flour. The company producing the cookies and other snacks is Grain Craft.
The company believes that there is only a small trace of peanut products in the flour. Those who have purchased the products likely won’t see any kind of allergic reaction, but just to be safe, the items can be returned to a store for a refund or thrown away.
The FDA has issued a statement that the peanut content is low. This is a voluntary recall from Kellogg. There have been no illnesses reported as of yet because of the peanut products in the flour. Some of the items that are included in the recall are Special K Brownies, Famous Amos cookies and Murray snacks. There are also several Keebler products that are a part of the recall. A full refund will be offered to those who have purchased an item that is on the list of products that are a part of the recall.
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. Kellogg says it has received no reports of related illness to date and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
