The Kellogg Company, which manufactures Austin® and Keebler® brands, issued an announcement stating a number of their cracker varieties will begin using peanut flour in April and May of this year. [Click here for more details and click here to sign our petition to Kellogg’s.]
Though only one Keebler variety was previously listed in the Safe Snack Guide, we are removing the listings for all Keebler cracker varieties as a precaution. Given that we do not have a direct relationship with Kellogg’s as they are not members of our Manufacturer Partnership, we cannot be sure that this change will not affect other varieties that may possibly share manufacturing lines with the affected varieties. (Austin crackers were never listed in the Guide.)
These entries have been removed:
- Keebler Club – Original, Reduced Fat, Multi-Grain, Buttery Garlic, Minis Original, Minis Multi-Grain
- Keebler Club Snack Sticks – Original, Honey Wheat
- Keebler Sandwich Cracker – Club and Cheddar
Note that this advisory does not affect listings in our Allergence product screening service as Allergence only lists products vetted via our Manufacturer Partnership.
Please discard your current copy of the Guide and download the latest revision:
Note: Though the Safe Snack Guide lists products that are free of peanuts, tree nuts and eggs, you can research each product listed in bold in Allergence to see how it is manufactured with respect to 11 allergens, including the “Top 8” as well as sesame, mustard and gluten.
Once again, we thank our readers and subscribers for their diligence and feedback which helps us keep the Safe Snack Guide up-to-date between product surveys. If you have not subscribed to our mailing list for updates and product advisories, we suggest you do so by completing the following form:
