House Lawmakers Launch Probe Of Kellogg’s Cereal Recall

August 4, 2010: 11:14 AM EST
The chairman and a key subcommittee member of the House energy and commerce panel want more information from Kellogg Company on its recent recall of 28 million boxes of breakfast cereals. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Bart Stupak (D-MI) wrote to Kellogg asking about the company's management of the nationwide recall of Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Fruit Loops, and Apple Jacks cereals because of complaints about a "waxy-like off-taste and smell." The odor was later found to stem from high levels of the chemical 2-methylnaphthalene. It was reported in one newspaper that the company had destroyed contaminated packaging before the recall was made public. Waxman and Stupak asked for a briefing from Kellogg executives on what the company is now doing to keep harmful chemicals out of food products.
