SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Cereal maker Kellogg’s is pulling a number of its snacks and cookies off store shelves because they may contain peanuts.

The company announced a voluntary recall of its Mother’s, Keebler, Kellogg’s Special K brownies, Murray and Famous Amos snacks and cookies because they may contain wheat flour with low levels of peanut residue.

A big supplier, Grain Craft found low levels of peanut residue in its flour and initiated a recall last April, prompting Frito-Lay, Hostess, and Kellogg’s to follow suit.

For people with severe peanut allergies the exposure could have adverse health effects.

So far, there have been no reports of illness to date.
