Kellogg recalls 28M cereal boxes due to foul smell from plastic packaging


Parents, if your kids eat any of these cereals, then you’ll want to read this warning.
The Wall Street Journal (6/26, Brat, Becker) reported Kellogg Co. recalled Friday about 28 million boxes of cereal mainly targeted at children because of fears that foul smells and  flavors from the boxes’ plastic packaging can cause nausea and diarrhea. The company said the recall covers some of its Kellogg’s Apple Jacks, Kellogg’s Corn Pops, Kellogg’s Froot Loops and Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereals distributed nationwide, and that the potential for serious health problems is low. Kellogg also said it is studying whether a wax-like compound in the packaging may be the cause of the problem.
