KELLOGG’S CEREAL RECALL

Published June 26, 2010 by tianateaparty

First SpaghetiO’s now Kelloggs cereal, OMG! 

Following is information posted from CNN.com:  Kellogg Co. is recalling 28 million boxes of several popular cereals due to an unusual flavor and smell, the company said Friday. The recall includes some boxes of Kellogg (K, Fortune 500) brands Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Froot Loops and Apple Jacks. The recalled products were sold across the country, Kellogg said.

The company said potential for serious health problems is low, but an “uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package” could cause temporary symptoms including nausea and diarrhea.

Only boxes with the letters “KN” following the “better if used before” date are included in the recall. Products with “KM” are not being recalled, nor are any products in Canada.

In a statement, Kellogg Chief Executive David Mackay apologized to consumers and said the company is “working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace.”

Consumers who have questions or want a replacement box of cereal can call Kellogg at 888-801-4163 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.

SpaghettiOs Recall

Published June 19, 2010 by tianateaparty

I did not know that Spaghettios were even still being sold, I know I used to eat them as a child and LOVED them but as I got older could not stand the thought of eating them.  That explains why my children have never ate them.  At any rate there are three SpaghettiO products that have been recalled they are:

SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs, and SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars). The products affected were manufactured between December 2008 and June 2010. The affected cans which are under the recall have a “use by” date that would fall between the dates of June 2010 and December 2011. The products were processed at the company’s plant located in Paris, Texas and have a code of EST4K.

Campbell Soup Co. has a hotline customers can call with any questions or concerns: (866) 495-3774. Or for more information go to the Campbell Soup website:  http://www.campbellsoup.com/consumeralert_spaghettios.aspx
