Special K Red Berries

Are you planning to eat some Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries for breakfast? You might want to check the box it came in since the company has just issued a voluntary recall for this product.

Kellogg Company is issuing the recall due to the possibility of it containing glass fragments.  The affected packages are the 11.2-ounce and 37-ounce packages as well as the 22.4-ounce twin packs.

The reason for the recall is that the company is taking a precautionary measure. There have been no reports as of now on anyone getting injured from these cereals.

The affected products are all sold in the United States alone Kellogg’s products sold in other countries as well as in Canada are not included in this recall.

The company further said in their website “Please check any packages you have in your home and if your package matches the following criteria, please do not eat the product and contact us for a replacement coupon. We may also make arrangements to retrieve the product for further evaluation.”

This is the third major recall issued by the company since their  Mini-wheats cereal was recalled last year due to presence of mesh fragments. A total of 2.8 million boxes were affected then.
