Kellogg Co. has announced a voluntary recall of its Keebler Cookies and SPECIAL K Meal Bars. Recall of Kellogg products comes from salmonella outbreak that has hit the entire nation's food supply.
Included in the Keebler and SPECIAL K products are Soft Batch Homestyle Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Current recalls include the SPECIAL K Protein Meal Bar (Honey Almond) with a Best Before Used date of Feb 1 2010.
It is important to note that no other SPECIAL K products are included in this Kellogg Co. RECALL. No illnesses were reported from these products and they are not directly produced in the Georgia peanut butter plant that has been suspect of this salmonella outbreak.

Kelloggs.com official website details all the products recalled, including Keebler® Soft Batch Homestyle Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies in 2.5 ounces bags only. Kelloggs' website also provides information to other associated products that have been recalled, as well as product pictures.
Personally, I am glad that no SPECIAL K cereal is included in this cautious salmonella related recall. SPECIAL K cereals is something I have for breakfast every morning, along with my coffee. Our family has not purchased any Soft Batch Homestyle Cookies recently, although we are big fans of a variety of them. We have been watching and following the news on the salmonella recalls.

Due to the peanut butter and peanut butter product recalls, we have been avoiding peanut butter products period. In fact, we have avoided anything that has peanuts as ingredients. As the main grocery shopper of our household, I have been watchful over all products purchased. I look for ingredients listed on the back for peanut butter. We have simply refused to purchase anything with peanut butter as a precaution.
Although food recalls seem to be too common these days, we are trying to pay attention to the news announcements. It does not guarantee a safety, as another product could be contaminated but we do what we can with the recall information provided.
