Kellogg Salmonella Contamination Confirmed

    Kellogg said Monday federal authorities have confirmed that salmonella was found in a single package of its peanut butter crackers, as a Midwestern grocer recalled some of its products because of the scare.

    Kellogg had recalled 16 products last week because of the possibility of salmonella contamination.

    On Monday, the company based in Battle Creek said that contamination was confirmed by the Food and Drug Administration in a single package of Austin Quality Foods Toasty Crackers with Peanut Butter.

  1. salmonella is a very dangerous and deadly bacteria. foods that are contaminated with it should be disposed immediately.

  2. Samlonella poisoning is very deadly. governments should impose tighter regulations with regards to food inspection.

  3. in our place some vegetables have been contaminated with Salmonella. the local health office have been able to react quickly and have those contaminated vegetables taken off immediately from the shelves. at least 20 people have suffered from Salmonella here.

  4. Salmonella is quite dangerous, specially when you ate foods infected with this bacteria. i had a friend who was hospitalized due to salmonella/food poisoning and he almost died from it.

  5. A few workers in our area got Salmonella poisoning. It is a good thing that they did not die and they have fully recovered. *
