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.
People who purchased the recalled products should discard them and contact Kellogg Company for a full refund. Consumers can call 800 962-1413, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or visit their website at www.kelloggs.com.
