Special K Products Affected By Recall

Special K is marketed by Kellogg as a low-calorie consumer option, but a rash of Kellogg recalls in recent years has cast doubt on the quality of the products manufactured by Kellogg. The latest Kellogg recall involves the following products:

  • 11.2-ounce retail packages of Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries cereal, identifiable by UPC Code 38000 59923, with a “Better if Used by” date stamp of DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 00:13 through DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 02:30;
  • 37-ounce club-store packages identifiable by UPC Code 38000 20940, with a “Better if Used by” date of NOV 30 2013 KNB 107 17:31 to NOV 30 2013 KNB 107 20:05; and
  • 22.4-ounce twin-packs identifiable by UPC Code 38000 78356, with a “Better if Used by” date of NOV 30 2013 KNA 105 07:00 to NOV 30 2013 KNA 105 08:51, and NOV 30 2013 KNB 105 15:00 to NOV 30 2013 KNB 105 12:05.

Special K is only the latest of a number of Kellogg products that have been recalled in recent years. In October 2012, Kellogg recalled 2.8 million boxes of its Mini-Wheats cereal after fragments of flexible metal mesh believed to be from a faulty manufacturing part were found inside packages. In June 2010, the company recalled millions of packages of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, Corn Pops, Apple Jacks and Froot Loops cereals due to an off-flavor and odor. In 2009, Kellogg voluntarily recalled certain lots of its Austin and Keebler brands of peanut-butter sandwich crackers and Famous Amos and Keebler cookies, due to a potential contamination with Salmonella. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious side effect that you believe to be caused by a defective product like the recalled Special K cereal, our consumer advocates can help you get in touch with a knowledgeable lawyer in your area, with whom you can explore your possible compensation options.
