[January 15, 2009]  BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- Cereal and snack maker Kellogg Co. has asked stores around the country to remove a variety of Austin- and Keebler-brand peanut butter crackers after a recall by a supplier involved in the samonella probe.

Virginia-based Peanut Corp. of America is the Kellogg supplier that recalled some of its peanut butter because of possible salmonella contamination. Kellogg says in a release Wednesday it hasn't gotten complaints or found a cause for concern.

A national salmonella outbreak has sickened more than 430 people.

FDA compliance officer Sandra Williams says Kellogg's move is a stop-sale order that's less serious than an actual recall. Williams says the action involves a large volume of product around the country. A Kellogg spokesman says the company is cooperating with federal authorities.
