On Wednesday, breakfast cereal giant Kellogg announced a voluntary recall in the U.S. of three sizes of its Special K Red Berries due to the possible presence of glass fragments.
A statement on the company’s website advises consumers to check any packages of the product they you have in their homes to determine whether it matches any of these codes:
- 11.2 ounce packages, UPC code 3800059923, Better if Used Before Date of DEC 02 2013 followed by KNC 105 with a time stamp of 00:13-2:30
- 22.4 ounce packages, UPC code 3800078356, Better if Used Before Date of NOV 30 2013 followed by KNA 105 with a time stamp of 07:00-08:51 or NOV 30 2013 followed by KNB 105 with a time stamp of 15:00-17:05
- 37 ounce packages, UPC code 3800020940, Better if Used Before Date of NOV 30 2013 followed by KNB 107 with a time stamp of 17:31-20:05
The statement notes further that any product matching the codes should not be eaten, and that the customer should contact the company for a replacement coupon and further instructions. These may include arrangements to retrieve the food for further evaluation.
Kellogg advises further that if you have packages of Special K Red Berries that do not conform to the sizes shown that it is not impacted by the recall. The same is true of packages with the letter combinations KXA, KXB, or KXC following the Better if Used Before Date. These products are deemed safe to eat.
