Kellogg's cereals

Kellogg has voluntarily recalled select packages of Kellogg’s Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereal products. Consumers are advised not to eat the recalled cereals because they do not meet quality standards. These may cause nausea and diarhea and short term illness. These breakfast cereals are recalled due to an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell which seems to emanate from the liner in the package.

Only cereal boxes with the letters "KN" following the "Better If Used Before Date" are recalled by Kellogg. This Kellogg cereal recall may not have any effect on the company's stock price and how this will affect the reputation of this great company is not known.

Do not worry though. The potential for serious health problems is low. It is reported that only some consumers are sensitive to the flavor and smell of these recalled products. Consumers should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

Kelloggs is offering a replacement coupon for those who are affected. Contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 and enter all your details like phone number, address, etc. at the prompts and you will receive a replacement coupon for the Kelloggs cereal.

      Thanks for the information. I can't believe I didn't see this in the news. We eat Fruit Loops as a snack.

      Thanks for the heads up. My kids like Froot Loops. I can't imagine what it takes for Kelloggs to actually recall these sugar filled nutrition depleted cereals. Luckily this week our cupboard is full of cinnamon toast crunch and Cupcake Fruity Pebbles instead.

      Thanks for sharing this information! I ate some Kellogg's cereal at the beginning of the week and then I thought I had a stomach flu. I wonder if there was a correlation? No one else got sick in the family though. Im not sure if the packages are still around, but I will check. I was also going to buy Kelloggs today because they have a special at the Meijer I shop at. If you buy 5 boxes you get 2 gallons of free milk! Hmmmm...wonder if they will have any cereal?
