I have the same and do not have any error with it.  There should be no
need for extra backslashes quoting that character.

The original message had the line abbreviated and word wrapped.  Is it
possible that the original file has a spurious newline in it that may
be hard to see?  Can you double check the contents of that file?  Your
editor may have done automatic word wrapping and inserted a newline
without your commanding it.

  $ wc -l /etc/cron.d/php5
  7 /etc/cron.d/php5

  $ grep php.*delete /etc/cron.d/php5 | wc -l
