What's for Breakfast? Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops, Honey Smacks May Contain Carcinogen


Bright and early Monday (Aug. 2) morning, the news services reported a Washington Post story that a toxic poison commonly found in mothballs, 2-methylnaphthalene, may be the culprit behind the 28,000,000 boxes of Kellogg’s cereal recalled on June 25, 2010.

Kellogg’s already admits that eating the cereal may cause “temporary” nausea and diarrhea, but if the Washington Post investigation is right, then ingesting the cereal means eating a known carcinogen, something known to cause cancer. That’s a big difference.

Were any of these cereals in your bowl for breakfast?
