Kellogg's Cereal Recall!!!!

We’ve already heard of quite a few different recalls this year including cars, cribs and food. And while we are speaking about food recalls, there now appears to be another. Kellogg Co. has just announced that they are recalling some of their children’s cereals.

According to Dylan at news.spreadit.org, Kellogg is recalling over 28 million boxes of children’s cereal, because of unpleasant smells and flavors that the packaging it comes in was producing. The cereal company said that the odor could cause diarrhea and nausea.

The company’s representative Adaire Putnam went on to explain that the voluntary recall affects Kellogg’s Apple Jacks, Kellogg’s Corn Pops, Kellogg’s Froot Loops, and Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, with best-before dates ranging from March 26th, 2011 to June 22nd, 2011.

About 20 people have reported both nausea and vomiting after being exposed to the packaging involved, the spokeswoman went on to explain. A press release from the company is now asking consumers to immediately dispose of boxes that they may have in their home.

Only products with the letters "KN" following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall.

I called yesterday for my refund. There isn't an odor, and my kids haven eaten it, but no sickness.

YAY! Another recall that I'm not affect by! WOO HOO! MAN! I sure do wish we could have the good old days back... when people did the best they could, all the time, and didn't adhere to the "it's so easy to say we're sorry, why bother making it right the first time?" theory of everything!

 You can never be sure...Malt O Meal has was recalled a couple of years ago for Salmonella.  It's crazy that big name brands aer having so many different issues!

Now I'm even more happy I just finished making a big batch of granola (which my toddler loves, btw, he ate half my bowl for me).  Rolled oats, a couple big handfuls of nuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, lots of raisins, and honey.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!
