Another Breakfast Cereal Recall Due to Salmonella Concerns
A popular children's breakfast cereal from Quaker is being voluntarily recalled over concerns of a possible Salmonella contamination. The FDA says a small quantity of Cap'n Crunch's Peanut Butter Crunch cereal could contain Salmonella, and says the affected boxes only reached five specific Target stores in Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas.
From the FDA:
There are no other Quaker products being recalled. The company is working closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to further investigate this issue and ensure the recalled products are removed from store shelves and are no longer distributed. In the meantime, the company is taking these actions out of commitment to and concern for consumers. No illnesses related to Salmonella have been confirmed to date.
Consumers who have purchased the above products are advised not to consume them, and urged to dispose of or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. They can direct any questions to 800-234-6281, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (EST), or find more information at cu.pepsico.com/capncrunch.
