| 29/06/2010

(CNS): Following what was described as an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the package liner in a number of cereal products Kellogg’s Company has initiated the recall of Corn Pops, Apple Jacks Froot Loops and Honey Smacks. As a result, in its third product pull of the day, Foster’s Food Fair said it has also removed the products from the shelves at all its stores. While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell, the manufactures said. Consumers should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

Consumers who have purchased this product should stop using it immediately and report any adverse reactions to a physician. Foster’s said until it has further correspondence from the manufacture it will not be available and apologized for the inconvenience, pointing out that customer safety was a top priority. The store encouraged all customers who have purchased this product to return the affected product to the Foster’s Food Fair where it was purchased for a full refund.

    That’s why it is good to read if the product you are eating is artificially flavored or not. Soon… we might not be able to eat many things. 🙁
