Peanut butter products recalled
Cheyenne, Wyo. – State health officials are urging Wyoming residents not to eat certain peanut butter products until those products are cleared of possible salmonella contamination.
Kellogg Company announced Thursday that several Austin- and Keebler-brand cracker products containing peanut butter were being pulled from store shelves.
A national outbreak of salmonella bacteria linked to peanut butter sickened more than 430 people in 43 states in November.
Kellogg officials say they have responded to that outbreak as a precaution. They say their own investigation showed no problems, nor have they received complaints from consumers about salmonella.
Wyoming Department of Agriculture spokesman Derek Grant says the state agency has asked retailers throughout Wyoming to pull the products from their shelves.
