(Scroll down for video) A popular cereal maker issued a recall after it feared that glass may have slipped into the mix of cereal, according to a statement made by the company.
Kellogg said that 36,000 packages of Special K Red Berries cereal may contain glass fragments and are dangerous, have been recalled, the latest in a series of recalls of popular brands.
Company spokesperson Kris Charles said late on Wednesday that three product sizes were involved which were distributed in the United States, to a limited number of retailers. No injuries of consumers have been reported, he said.
“The company took this precautionary measure due to the possible presence of glass fragments of a single batch of an ingredient,” Charles said. “This is a very small recall. We took the step out of an abundance of caution,” he added.
Special K is touted by the company as a choice for consumers seeking a low calorie cereal.
Last year, Kellogg recalled 2,800,000 boxes of its Mini-Wheat cereal after flexible metal mesh were found inside the packages.
