Kellogg's Cereal Recall Info!


Ok so i stumbled onto this information by accident and discovered that I have 2 boxes that were in the recall. So as of June 25, 2010 Kellogg's cereal voluntarily recalled select packages of Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Fruit Loops, and Apple Jacks. Kelloggs tell you on the website why the recall is taking place.

"These packages are being recalled because we identified a substance in the package liner that can produce an uncharacteristic waxy-like off-taste and smell. The off-tastes and smells are caused by a slightly elevated level of a substance commonly present at very low levels in the waxy resins used to make packaging materials that are approved by the FDA. These resins are also commonly used to coat foods such as cheese, raw fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers. We did not find any substances that are not commonly used in packaging materials. We are working with our supplier of the liner to ensure that this problem does not happen again." They go on to tell which packages are being recalled:

"We are recalling the following cereal products due to an off-taste and smell coming from the package liner. Only products with the letters "KN" following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall.Only packages in the white, paper-backed foil liner are affected by the off-taste and smell.
