Kellogg's Coco Pops and Rice Bubbles Recalled

Kellogg's Coco Pops and Kellogg's Rice Bubbles Voluntary Recall

Kellogg (Aust) Pty Ltd is voluntarily recalling a limited number of Kellogg's Coco Pops and Kellogg's Rice Bubbles Breakfast Cereal packs as a precautionary measure. This follows the discovery of small pieces of thin wire in a few packs.

Kellogg's first and overriding concern is always the safety of our consumers and quality of our products and as such we have initiated this recall.

Products that are being recalled in both Australia and New Zealand are Kellogg's Coco Pops and Kellogg's Rice Bubbles with the below best before dates:

Consumer Retail Packs:

Best Before Dates of APR 05 28, APR 05 29, and APR 05 30 located on the top of the box for the following pack sizes:

• 450g Kellogg's Coco Pops Breakfast Cereal

• 785g Kellogg's Coco Pops Breakfast Cereal

• 1.065kg Kellogg's Coco Pops Breakfast Cereal

• 1.26kg Kellogg's Coco Pops Breakfast Cereal

• 300g Kellogg's Rice Bubbles Breakfast Cereal

• 530g Kellogg's Rice Bubbles Breakfast Cereal

• 850g Kellogg's Rice Bubbles Breakfast Cereal

Food Service Catering Packs:

Best Before Dates with the first 6 digits of 28 01 05, 29 01 05 and 30 01 05 located on the side of the carton for the following pack sizes:

• 6 x 1kg Kater Pak Coco Pops Breakfast Cereal

• 6 x 1kg Kater Pak Rice Bubbles Breakfast Cereal

Only products with these specific best before dates are included in this recall. Consumers can be assured that all other Kellogg products meet our high quality standards and are not affected by this issue.

During investigation of a serious consumer complaint, it was found that an isolated incident occurred during production of the cereal which resulted in small pieces of thin wire mixing with the product. As a result of this incident, Kellogg is fully reviewing manufacturing and operating procedures and will take whatever action is necessary to ensure that this does not happen again.

Kellogg apologises to all our consumers and thanks those who alerted the company to the incident.

We ask anyone with family and friends who may have purchased any of these products to contact them in case they may not be aware of this recall.

Consumers are asked to return any of the recalled packs to the store of purchase for a full refund or call the Kellogg Customer Contact Centre on 1800 000 474 in Australia and 0800 881 889 in New Zealand for further information or advice.
