Broken glass in Kellogg's Special K?

20 February 2013

Kellogg has voluntarily recalled 36,000 boxes of Special K Red Berries cereal due to the possibility that they may contain broken glass.

The company advised consumers to check boxes that could be affected, warning that the product should not be consumed. “If your package matches the information below, do not eat the food and contact us for a replacement coupon,” Kellogg said on its website. “We may also make arrangements to retrieve the food for further evaluation." 

The cereal affected by the voluntary recall can be identified with the following information:

  • 11.2oz package with a UPC Code 38000 59923 with a ‘better if used before’ date of 2 December 2013
  • 22.4oz twin pack with a UPC Code 38000 78356 with a ‘better if used before’ date of 30 November 2013
  • 37oz package with a UPC Code 38000 20940 and a ‘better if used before' date of 30 November 2013
According to Kellogg, if a cereal package is any size other than 11.2, 22.4 or 37oz, it is not impacted by this recall. The company added: "If your package has the letters KXA, KXB, or KXC following the ‘better if used before’ date, it is not impacted by this recall."

Consumers who may have purchased the recalled product are advised to contact Kellogg Consumer Affairs.
