Voluntary recall of two Little Debbie peanut butter sandwich crackers

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Two popular Little Debbie peanut butter sandwich crackers are being voluntarily recalled by McKee Foods Corporation. McKee Foods announced the voluntary national recall Monday, because the two products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The voluntary recall includes all sizes of Little Debbie Peanut Butter Toasty Sandwich Crackers, and all sizes of Little Debbie Peanut Butter Cheese Sandwich Crackers.

McKee says it announced the voluntary recall of the two peanut butter sandwich products, even though the company has received no consumer illness complaints about the two peanut butter sandwich crackers, or any of its other products.

The two sandwich cracker products involved in the voluntary recall were made for McKee Foods by Kellogg Company. Kellogg announced a precautionary hold on several of its peanut butter sandwich products on January 14, while the Food and Drug Administration and other authorities investigated PCA, Peanut Corporation of America, which is one of Kellogg's peanut paste suppliers for these crackers. The McKee Foods recall impacts the two products produced on or after July 1, 2008, and includes all sizes, weights and packages. No other Little Debbie products are involved in this voluntary recall from McKee Foods.

The company also says the Little Debbie Cheddar on Cheese Sandwich Cracker is not affected by the voluntary recall action. McKee says it does not purchase peanut paste or peanut butter from PCA, so no other Little Debbie products containing peanut butter are affected or involved in the voluntary recall action.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to discard them, but retain the freshness code and contact McKee Foods Consumer Affairs at 1-800-522-4499.
