Special K Recall 2009: Peanut Butter Strikes Again

Kellogg is recalling some of its Special K bars and Keebler Cookies because of concerns tied to the nationwide peanut butter salmonella outbreak.

Special K Recall and More

This time, the products affected are Special K Protein Meal Bars, honey almond flavor. The bars come in six- and eight-count packages, have a “best if used before” date earlier than February 1, 2010, and have one of the following three UPC codes: 3800039778, 3800039935, or 3800039931.

The Keebler cookies involved are the Soft Batch Homestyle Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies that comes in the 2.5-ounce size. The products will have a “best if used before” date earlier than June 30, 2009. They’ll have one of two UPC codes: 3010032708 or 3010037899.

Kellogg says the products don’t actually have peanut ingredients from the Peanut Corporation of America but were made on the same line as other products that may have had the tainted peanuts.

Kellogg is also expanding its recall of Austin and Keebler Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers and snack-sized packs of Famous Amos Peanut Butter Cookies and Keebler Soft Batch Homestyle Cookies. The recalls for those products now include all code dates and varieties.
