An IMPORTANT Notice from SnackSafely.com
On March 30, the Kellogg Company made a targeted announcement on the
FARE website stating they would begin adding peanut flour to existing
Keebler and Austin cracker brands – some of which were listed in this
Guide – beginning in April.
The company did NOT make this announcement via press release, on their
site, or on their social media properties, so the general public is
unaware of this change.
On March 31 we removed all Keebler brand crackers from the Safe Snack
Guide as THESE NOW PRESENT A DANGER FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH PEANUT ALLERGY.
We urge all parents, teachers, school nurses, aides, PTA leaders,
coaches, camp counselors, scout leaders, and anyone else responsible for
allergic children to PLEASE inform your family, friends, and colleagues
of this change, as the introduction of a peanut ingredient in products
previously assumed to be free of peanuts could have CATASTROPHIC
consequences for individuals with peanut allergy.
