Kellogg's brand peanut butter recall in US

Kellogg's recalls more peanut butter products
WASHINGTON (AP): First it was bulk peanut butter shipped to nursing homes and institutional cafeterias. Now the salmonella case has touched the Kellogg Co., which has recalled 16 products as federal officials confirm contamination at a Georgia facility that sent peanut products to 85 food companies.

Kellogg had asked stores this week to pull some of its Keebler crackers from shelves as a precaution...

The recall includes Austin and Keebler branded Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, in addition to some snack-size packs of Famous Amos Peanut Butter Cookies and Keebler Soft Batch Homestyle Peanut Butter Cookies.

What is Salmonella?
