Kellogg's Recalls Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Kellogg's Recalls Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Could peanut butter be the new milk? Following a salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter, Kellogg's announced late yesterday that it has asked stores to halt sales of all Austin and Keebler peanut butter sandwiches.While the company says it hasn't received any complaints or found any issues related to the products, Kellogg's has voluntarily ceased the sale of these products as a precautionary measure, after its supplier, Peanut Corp. of America, issued a recall for its peanut butter, due to possible contamination.

Austin and Keebler are pulling toasted peanut butter sandwich crackers, peanut butter and jelly sandwich crackers, cheese and peanut butter sandwich crackers, and peanut butter-chocolate sandwich crackers from store shelves across the country.

About a month or so ago, my mom and my sister-in-law noticed a change in my 3 year old nephew's eating habits. He all of a sudden became very picky, and would say his tummy hurt when he did eat, or even when offered food. We all assumed this was just something he picked up from his picky 6 year old sister. They were feeding him Peanut Butter Crackers, because that's all they could get him to eat. He then came down with what was assumed to be a stomach virus that he couldn't kick, for about 2-3 weeks. Of course, they didn't think anything about feeding him peanut butter crackers until they recalled them. He's fine and back to normal now. So, I wonder, was he getting Salomonella from the PNB crackers? Isn't it interesting that a lot of the products the FDA recalls, happen to be aimed at little kids. Or, well the FDA refused to recall American made baby formula proven to have melamine present. The brands they allowed to continue being sold are very popular brands of baby formula as well...

I don't like these because they have hardly any peanut butter taste. When I have a craving for some, I make my own out of unsalted soda crackers and "natural" peanut butter.

These are common, though I don't eat them except on airplanes. I never would have suspected that you could get salmonella from eating something like this.

i hope that they are able to get to the bottom of everything quickly because we saw how outbreaks and fear like this could really hurt the food production industry.
