Jan. 15, 2009 – Cereal giant Kellogg has asked
stores to stop selling its popular Keebler and Austin brand peanut
butter crackers, as health officials reported two more deaths in the U.S. salmonella outbreak that is linked to peanut butter.

Kellogg, of Battle Creek, Mich., said it hadn't received any
complaints or discovered any problems with the crackers, but took the
action as a "precautionary measure" after one of its peanut paste
suppliers, Peanut Corp. of America, announced a nationwide recall of
peanut butter made in a Georgia plant.

The company is "removing
product from retail store shelves and encouraging customers and
consumers to hold and not eat these products until regulatory officials
complete their investigation of PCA," a news release on the Kellogg Co.
Web site said late Wednesday.
