The Kellogg Company has placed a precautionary hold on its Austin and Keebler brands of peanut butter sandwich crackers, and is asking consumers to not eat these products until the investigation surrounding the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) peanut butter recall has been completed.
PCA is one of several suppliers of peanut butter paste used in the fillings of these sandwich crackers.
Kellogg has put an inventory hold on the products, and has instructed that they be removed from store shelves. The company has not issued a recall notice, but is using the "product hold" mechanism as a safety precaution while it determines whether any of the following Austin or Keebler products contain recalled peanut butter:
- Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers
- Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Crackers
- Cheese and Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers
- Peanut Butter-Chocolate Sandwich Crackers
Kellogg has not received reports of any illnesses associated with these products. And, while the company has not initiated a recall, any consumer who wishes to return one of the sandwich cracker products for a refund can call the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 1-888-314-2060.
