The Quaker Oats company announced a voluntary recall on a small quantity of Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch cereal.
The FDA says that this is due to the potential presence of Salmonella. The potentially affected product only reached five specific Target stores and is limited to 21 boxes of on variety with two Best Before Dates.

Quaker is initiating the voluntary recall to protect public health. No illnesses related to Salmonella have been confirmed.
The recall was initiated as the result of a routine sampling program by the company. The FDA says that this sampling program revealed that the finished product may contain bacteria.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration provided the following information:
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 customers 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, endocarditis and arthritis.
