Announcement
Lisle, IL. – Armour-Eckrich Meats LLC today announced that it is voluntarily recalling Armour® Snackmakers Keebler Animal Crackers because they contain animal cracker cookies with undeclared peanut residue.
While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. The company has received no reports of related illness to date and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
