Two new studies bolster evidence that feeding babies peanuts or other allergy-inducing foods is more likely to protect them than to cause problems. One study, a follow-up to landmark research published last year, suggests that the early prevention strategy leads to persistent, long-lasting results in children at risk for food allergies. It found that allergy protection lasted at least through age 5 and didn't wane even when kids stopped eating peanut-containing foods for a year. (AP Photo/Patrick Sison, File)

NEW YORK (AP) — Peanut residue accidently included in some of the country’s most well-known snacks is creating a lengthening roster of recalls.

Kellogg and Mars joined the list this week after supplier Grain Craft recalled certain lots of flour for undeclared peanut residue.

Kellogg Co. is recalling some Mother’s, Keebler, Kellogg’s, Special K brownies, Murray and Famous Amos snacks and cookies. Mars Chocolate North America is recalling some Combos.

Neither company has received reports of any illnesses related to the recalls.

Hostess Brands earlier this month announced a related recall covering more than 700,000 cases of Ding Dongs, Zingers, Chocodiles and doughnuts sold in grocery, dollar, drug and convenience stores in the U.S. and Mexico.
