There are many different reasons that food will be recalled by its manufacturer. Some of these recalls are initiated because something went wrong when the product was being made, thereby creating the potential for allergic outbreaks or other problems. However, one of the biggest reasons that food is recalled is because of the presence of foreign objects, and it seems that cereal giant Kellogg has become a member of that dubious club with a recently announced recall of 36,000 boxes of its cereal because of the possibility of glass fragments being stuck inside of them.
Given the popularity of products sold by Kellogg, it’s important to create as much awareness as possible with regards to this cereal recall. Below you will find a brief overview of the details that relate to this situation as well as information regarding what you should do if you are one of the consumers who purchased one of the units in question. Anyone who has been injured by this or any other food product needs to obtain the help of experienced California defective products lawyers as soon as possible.
