Peanut Butter Crunch pulled from Target stores

Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch cereal boxes distributed to five Target stores in Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas, have been recalled because of the potential presence of salmonella. Quaker Oats Company announced the voluntary recall after a routine sampling revealed that the finished cereal product may contain bacteria.

The 17.1 ounce boxes of Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch cereal were distributed to the following Target stores:

  • Super Target, 4001 N 132nd St, Omaha NE 68164
  • P-Fresh, 4250 Rusty Rd, Saint Louis, MO 63128
  • Super Target, 10800 E 21st St N, Wichita KS 67206
  • Super Target, 8201 S 40th St., Lincoln NE 68516
  • P-Fresh, 1040 NE Coronado, Blue Springs MO 64014

Recalled cereal boxes are marked with UPC 0 30000 6211 1 and Best Before Dates of JUL 30 19 or JUL 31 19. The Quaker Oats Company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., is working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate the source of the potential salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
