Kellogg's Special K Red Berries cereal recalled for possible glass fragments

Glass fragments may be in some packages

Kellogg’s is recalling boxes of its Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries cereal because of the risk of glass fragments in some packages.

The company voluntarily recalled the product Monday and noted that there have been no reports of any injuries associated with the product.

The recall includes three different size boxes with the following information:

11.2-ounce package 
- UPC Code 38000 59923 
- Better if Used Before: DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 00:13 through DEC 02 2013 KNC 105 02:30

22.4-ounce twin pack

Kellogg’s says any other size boxes, or those with different letter codes following the Better if Used by Dates are not affected.

If you do have a recalled Special K Red Berries box, do not eat the cereal and contact Kellogg’s for a replacement coupon.

This is not the first time Kellogg's had to recall a cereal because of a risk of fragments in the food. In October, the company recalled boxes of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal and its Unfrosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal because of fears they may contain metal fragments.
