Hmm, the 'touch flag' command shouldn't return any output to send to the log.txt. I wouldn't expect anything to be in that file. What are you expecting to be in the file?

Does the crontab user have write permission to /Feed/bin ?
Have you tried modifying the script to simply
Code:
touch /Feed/bin/flag
