Kellogg’s Cereal Recall: Reasons why it happened

You may remember a few weeks ago when we informed you about a recall for cereal makers Kellogg’s. We now have an update on that story to give you, as Kellogg’s has given further information on why the recall occurred in the first place.

As reported from Associated Press, Kellogg’s revealed that it was the ‘unusual’ amount of chemicals contained in the package liners of the four cereal products recalled, that was the key factor in announcing the recall a few weeks ago.

Consumers who complained about the cereals said that the taste was similar to that of metal or soap – Kellogg’s has now put that down to hydrocarbons and methyl naphthalene. Apparently, these chemicals are usually present in their packaging, but at much lower quantities than what was revealed in the examination.
