Cereal giant Kellogg has recalled more products amid the ongoing peanut salmonella outbreak in the US.

As a result of the expansion of Peanut Corporation of America's (PCA) recall to include all peanut ingredients produced in its Georgia facility since 1 January 2007, Kellogg has issued a voluntary nationwide recall on a number of Keebler and Special K products.

Keebler Soft Batch Homestyle Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, 2.5oz size only, with a 'Best If Used Before' date prior to 30 June 2009, and with the UPC codes: 3010032708, 3010037899, are being recalled.

Kellogg is also pulling its Honey Almond Special K Protein Meal Bar in six-count and eight-count packages, with a 'Best If Used Before' date prior to 1 February 2010, and with the UPC codes: 3800039778, 3800039935, 3800039931.

Kellogg said no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the above products.

Kellogg subsidiary Kashi has also announced a number of recalls. The company announced yesterday (2 February) that it would pull its Kashi Chewy Granola Bars in Trail Mix and Honey Almond Flax varieties. The lines have a 'Best If Used Before' date prior to 19 September 2009 with UPC codes 1862703000, 1862703001, 1862723959, 1862728409, 1862731567.

Kashi is also recalling its namesake Chewy Granola Bars Peanut Butter with a 'Best If Used Before' date prior to 8 August 2009 and UPC code: 1862703002.

Meanwhile, the company is also pulling its Kashi Chewy Cookies in Oatmeal Dark Chocolate, Happy Trail Mix and Oatmeal Raisin Flax varieties with a 'Best If Used Before' date prior to 30 July 2009 and UPC codes 1862732467, 1862742593, 1862762001, 1862762002, 1862762003.

At the weekend, Bear Naked, the Kellogg-owned granola business, said that it would pull all Appalachian Trail Mix products.

According to figures released yesterday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some 550 people in 43 US states have been infected with the outbreak strain of salmonella. Eight deaths have also been linked to the outbreak, while one person has also been taken ill in Canada.

President Obama, meanwhile, criticised the US Food and Drug Administration yesterday in the midst of the recall and called for a review of the FDA's operations.

"I think the FDA has not been able to catch some of these things as quickly as I expect them to catch them, so we're going to be doing a complete review of FDA operations," Obama told Matt Lauer during an interview broadcast on NBC's Today show.

"At a bare minimum, we should be able to count on our government keeping our kids safe when they eat peanut butter," the president said, after telling how his daughter eats peanut butter several times a week.
