Cereal recalled - glass contamination | Food contamination injury lawyer

Posted on Feb 21, 2013

Food contamination seems to be on the rise. Each week, we hear of another food product recall over concerns of bacterial contamination or contamination with metal, plastic, glass, etc.

This week, a major cereal company announced a recall of over 30,000 boxes of cereal due to concerns of potential glass contamination. Kellogg Co. recalled 36,000 boxes of Special K Red Berries cereal. The cereal was distributed to retailers across the U.S. Anyone who has a box of this cereal should contact Kellogg for a replacement coupon.

Recent Food Product Recalls:

The following boxes of cereal are involved in this recent Kellogg recall:

  • 11.2-ounce packages with UPC 38000 59923 and multiple best buy dates.
  • Large 37-ounce packages UPC 38000 20940 and multiple best buy dates.
  • Twin 22.4-ounce packages with UPC 38000 78356 and multiple best buy dates.

Cereal with letters KXA, KXB or KXC following the ‘better if used before’ date are not affected by the recall.

This isn't the first recall by Kellogg. Last fall, the company recalled almost 3 million boxes of Mini-Wheats cereal due to potential metal fragment contamination. The metal fragments were actually mesh material, and occurred due to a defective manufacturing part.
