Kellogg’s Co. announced Friday morning that it was voluntarily recalling 28 million boxes of its cereal brands because of an unusual smell and taste. The affected cereals include Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, Corn Pops and Honey Smacks.
The recall be seen by consumers who purchase the cereal brand in San Francisco, as Lucky Supermarkets will be taking the affected cereals off the shelves.
“We are not taking any chances,” said Louie Yan, spokesman for Save Mart Supermarkets, which operates Lucky’s. “We act quickly to send out informational packet to stores whenever there is a recall,” Yan said.
Kellogg said about 20 consumers who ate the affected cereal felt nauseated and experienced diarrhea symptoms.
There are two Lucky Supermarkets in San Francisco and one in Daly City. A spokesman for Safeway has yet to return phone calls asking whether the stores would take the cereals off its shelves.
