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.

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.
