Special K recall over glass fragments in cereal
Fans of Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries may want to check the UPC code on their cereal boxes.
The company announced on its website last Friday that it had recalled lots of three sizes of the cereals because they may be contaminated with glass fragments.
The packages affected by the recall are:
*11.2 ounce packages, with a UPC Proof of Purchase Code: 38000 59923
- Better if Used Before: DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 00:13 through DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 02:30
*37.0 ounce packages with a UPC Proof of Purchase Code: 38000 20940
- Better if Used Before Date: NOV 30 2013 KNB 107 17:31 through NOV 30 2013 KNB 107 20:05
*22.4 ounce twin pack with a UPC Proof of Purchase Code: 38000 78356
- Better if Used Before Date: Nov 30 2013 KNA 105 07:00 through NOV 30 2013 KNA 105 08:51
- Better if Used Before Date: NOV 30 2013 KNB 105 15:00 through NOV 30 2013 KNB 105 17:05
The company says that sizes other than these packages are not affected by the recall, nor are packages with the letter codes KXA, KXB or KXC which are found after the “Better if Used Before Date.” No other Kellogg products have been included in the recall.
There have been no reports of injuries associated with these products, the company said.
People who have these packages could contact Kellogg’s for a coupon for a replacement.
Earlier this month, Nestle Prepared Foods recalled boxes of Lean Cuisine frozen ravioli due to possible glass shards in products.
Last year, Kellogg’s issued a recall of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size products due to the possibility of flexible metal mesh fragments in the products.
