Several snack brands recalled after peanut reside left off label

Several different brands of snack products have been pulled from shelves, after an allergen was apparently left off of the ingredient list.

Giant Food says several Kellogg Company, and Mars Chocolate North America products that may contain peanut residue, have been recalled, after that information was apparently left off the ingredient list.

Officials say the items, which include Keebler, Kellogg’s Special K brownies, Murray, Famous Amos snacks and cookie products, and COMBOS are safe to eat for those who don’t have a peanut allergy, but those with severe peanut allergies are being advised to avoid the recalled products because of peanut residue in these products.

The amount of peanut exposure from use of the recalled products is low, according to Giant, and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.

The following are included in this recall:
