A Few Boxes of Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal Recalled for Possible Salmonella

Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch cereal is being recalled for possible Salmonella contamination. Just 21 boxes of one variety with two Best Before Dates that were sold at five specific Target stores are recalled.

Routine sampling by the company found that the finished cereal may contain pathogenic bacteria. The boxes of cereal that are part of this recall were purchased after November 5, 2018.

The recalled product is for 21 17.1 ounce boxes of Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch cereal with UPC number 0 30000 6211 1 and Best Before Dates of JUL 30 19 and JUL 31 19. These boxes were purchased at the following Target stores: Super Target at 4001 North 132nd Street in Omaha, Nebraska; P-Fresh at 4250 Rusty Road in St. Louis, Missouri; Super Target at 10800 East 21st Street North in Wichita, Kansas; Super Target at 8201 South 40th Street in Lincoln, Nebraska; and P-Fresh at 1040 Northeast Coronado in Blue Springs, Missouri.

No other Quaker product are recalled. The company is working with the FDA to investigate this issue. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

If you bought Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch cereal with those specific Best Before Dates and the UPC number at those specific stores, don’t eat it. Wrap the box in foil or plastic wrap and put it into a secure garbage can. You can also return the product to the store where you bought it for a refund.

The symptoms of salmonellosis include fever, nausea, abdominal cramps and pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. Most people recover from this infection on their own, but some do become sick enough that they must be hospitalized. And Salmonella infections can have long term consequences, such as endocarditis and reactive arthritis.
