Kellogg Company announces their first recall in 2013, Special K Red Berries cereal.
Company spokesman Kris Charles said late on Wednesday that three sizes of the product were involved and had been distributed across the United States to a limited number of retailers. No consumer injuries have been reported, she said.
“The company took this precautionary action due to the possible presence of glass fragments from a single batch of one of the ingredients,” Charles said. “This is a very small recall…We took the step out of an abundance of caution.”
According to the multinational food manufacturing company, 36,000 packages of its Special K Red Berries cereal could contain dangerous glass fragments and have been pulled from the market, the latest in a series of recalls of its popular brands.
Charles stated that the voluntary recall is unrelated to big recalls in recent years that involved other well-known Kellogg cereals, cookies and crackers.
The Battle Creek, Michigan based company is continually attempting to turn itself around cutting too many jobs in recent years that contributed to the manufacturing problems.
