kelloggs-recall June 29, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Kellogg’s has been an integral part of breakfast for many families since the last few years. The brand has always maintained its health promises. But recently, things changed when an official statement from the company, recalled its products suspecting some packaging issues.

The company has recalled four popular cereals owing to a strange ’smell’ from the packaging boxes. These four varieties include the Corn Pops, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks and Honey Smacks, which are sugary staples of Kellogg’s.

While recalling the products, chief executive officer and president of Kellogg Company, David Mackay said, “We offer our sincere apology to our customers and consumers. We are working carefully and making sure that all the affected products are taken out of the market place very soon.”

The cereal brand is suspecting leakage of chemical into the cereal from the food packaging. So, Kellogg’s has recalled about 28 million boxes of the cereal.

The Food and Drug Administration has stated the reason for recall to be an uncharacteristic off-flavor from the liner in the Kellogg’s package. According to some other sources, a wax like substance is the reason behind this recall.

Warnings have been issued to the parents asking them not to give the cereals to their children as it may cause vomiting or diarrhea, especially in the sensitive kids.

Kellogg’s has given a telephone number (888-801-4163), which remains open from 8 AM to 8 PM as per the Eastern Time. The consumers can call up this number for any further information.

So, it is better to avoid these four varieties of Kellogg’s for a few days until the company resolves the issue.
