Kellogg Recalls 28 Million Boxes of Cereal‎

Working in consultation with the United States Food and Drug Administration, Kellogg Company is implementing a voluntary recall of certain breakfast cereals due to an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package.

Included in the recall are select packages of Kellogg's Corn Pops, Kellogg's Honey Smacks, Kellogg's Froot Loops and Kellogg's Apple Jacks. Only products with the letters "KN" following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall. Products with a "KM" designation are not included in the recall. In addition, no products in Canada are affected.

While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

No other Kellogg's products are part of this recall. The recalled products were distributed nationwide.

"We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace," said David Mackay, president and chief executive officer, Kellogg Company.

Unknown a dit…

Wow! Do you know why they recalling it?

Packaging equipment a dit…

It's unfortunate that this happened because people are actually eating the food from this packaging and they might get sick. Sounds like the cause of the smell could have been the packaging equipment used to pack these boxes.
