On June 13, 2016, Kellogg Company recalled certain varieties and limited dates of production of Mother's, Keebler, Kellogg's Special K brownies, Murray, and Famous Amos snacks and cookies because they may contain undisclosed peanut residue. Kellogg initiated the recall after its supplier, Grain Craft, recalled wheat flour that has the potential to contain low levels of peanut residue.
While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.
The products were distributed throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
