Little Debbie recalls peanut butter crackers....

McKee Foods Corporation that sells Little Debbie snacks, with a plant located in Stuarts Draft, recalled peanut butter crackers due to the salmonella outbreak from peanut butter produced by Virginia-based Peanut Corporation of America. It was a precautionary, voluntary effort to prevent a possible outbreak of illness as has been reported by other companies using the peanut butter.

Wal-Mart products were also pulled.

As announced by Fox News:
The announcement by McKee Foods Corp. of Collegedale, Tenn., about two kinds of Little Debbie products was another in a string of voluntary recalls following the most recent guidance by health officials.

The South Bend Chocolate Co. in Indiana said Sunday it too was recalling various candies containing peanut butter from Peanut Corp. of America. In suburban Chicago, Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Products recalled several brands of peanut butter cookies it sells through Wal-Mart stores.
These are the latest in a series of recalls.
