Kellogg is voluntarily recalling over 20 products of snacks and cookies because of possible peanut residue contamination, the company announced on June 13.

The items in the recall include varieties and limited dates of production of Mother’s, Keebler, Kellogg’s Special K brownies, Murray, and Famous Amos snacks and cookies.

The company is pulling the items of shelves after its supplier, Grain Craft, recalled wheat flour that may contain low levels of peanut residue.

The company warns that people with peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products that were distributed nationwide and in Puerto Rico. 

However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the “amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority” of those with peanut allergies.

Kellogg says consumers looking for more information on the recall should call 1-800-962-1413, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.—6 p.m. ET. Full information of the recall can be found here
