Glass shards prompt Kellogg's to recall boxes of Special K Red Berries

Last week, we told Florida readers about how Nestle had recalled some of its Lean Cuisine frozen entrees because they contained or might contain pieces of glass.

That certainly seemed like an unusual situation, but evidently, finding shards of glass in prepared food might be less rare than you might realize.

Last Friday, Kellogg's announced that certain boxes of Special K Red Berries cereal need to be returned to the point of purchase because some lots of the cereal might contain shards of glass.

(You can visit the "U.S. Alerts" section of Kellogg's website to see the specific batches of cereal that are being recalled.)

So far, there have not been any reported injuries, and no other Kellogg's products are affected. Last year, Kellogg's recalled some of its packages of Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size cereals because some of them contained "flexible metal mesh fragments."

Even if no one has been hurt yet, it is still alarming to hear about foreign objects in our food supply, especially since it seems to happen so easily.

We wish there were something you could do in advance to protect yourself, but other than keeping up with the news so you can hear about recalls as they happen, there is not much we can recommend.

You do, however, have the option of exploring the possibility of a lawsuit if you are ever harmed by a dangerous or defective product. It is not right to let a company that makes a flawed product get away with it if that company has caused you harm.
