Kellogg is recalling some of its Special K Red Berries cereal due to the potential that the batches might contain glass fragments. Kellogg’s website posted the recall stating that some of their Special K Red Berries may have broken glass in the box, according to Fox News Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013.
The company asked the consumers to check the packages that they may have at home and if your box of Special K Red Berries matches any of the information posted below, contact them for a replacement coupon. The company also said that they may make arrangements to “retrieve the food for further evaluation.”
According to Kellogg’s website, the following boxes are affected by the recall:
* 11.2-ounce package with a UPC Code 38000 59923 with a better if used before date of Dec. 2, 2013.
* 22.4-ounce twin pack with a UPC Code 38000 78356 with a better if used before Nov. 30, 2013.
* 37-ounce package with a UPC Code 38000 20940 and a better if used before date of Nov. 30 2013.
If your Special K cereal box is not mentioned above, it is not included in the recall, states the website. The boxes that have the letters KXA, KXB or KXC following the “better if used before” date are also not included in this recall.
Kellogg’s posted their contact phone number to call if you do have one of the boxes involved the recall. The phone number is 1-800-962-1413, which is their consumer affairs line.
According to CBS News on Wednesday, there’s been no report of injury due to the glass fragments so far. This is the second recall of a popular food this month for possible glass fragments in the product. Nestle Prepared Foods recalled boxes of Lean Cuisine frozen ravioli, due to the same potential problem.
