Kellogg says FDA confirms salmonella in crackers


BATTLE CREEK, Mich. Food maker Kellogg says federal authorities have confirmed that salmonella has been found in a package of one of its peanut butter crackers.

Last week the Battle Creek, Mich.-based company recalled 16 products due to possible salmonella contamination.

On Monday it said that contamination was confirmed by the Food and Drug Administration in a package of Austin Quality Foods Toasty Crackers with Peanut Butter.

Also Monday, Meijer Inc. is recalling two types of crackers and two varieties of ice cream due to possible salmonella contamination.

Meijer brand Cheese and Peanut Butter and Toasty Peanut Butter sandwich crackers and Peanut Butter and Jelly and Peanut Butter Cup ice cream are being recalled.

A salmonella outbreak has killed at least six people and sickened more than 470 others in 43 states.
