This just in (about three days ago) that Kellogg is calling back four of its major cereal brands; Froot Loops, Honey Smacks, Apple Jacks, and Corn Pops.

We might ask why, aside from the obvious being that chemical filled food like this is as dangerous as an atomic bomb going off on our kitchen table.  Kellogg had an answer, one that many parents did not appreciate at all…

Kellogg Co. is voluntarily recalling about 28 million boxes of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks cereals, saying a "waxy" smell and flavor coming from the package liners could make people sick, the company said Friday.     – Huffington Post

28 million boxes…wow…I got to say that’s a lot of contaminated food.

Kellogg Co. voluntarily recalled certain packages of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks cereals Friday due to a strange waxy-like taste and odor coming from the liner of the package.    – Wallet Pop

Wait, so you’re telling me that the pungent smell that has been coming from these cereals (especially when burped back up by the young) is not the smell we should worry about but it’s the new, waxy smell we should fear?  A waxy smell that is secreting from the lining of the cereal boxes themselves?

I’ll just…not eat cereal…avoid both the foodage and the poisonous lining.


Let’s first acknowledge that one of these cereals they pulled off the shelves comes wrapped in the infamous astronaut silver wrappings that looks like it’s trying to contain some sort of biological weapon (generally called Corn Pops, in this case).

However, I don’t recall every vomiting after smelling and eating these cereals…

According to Kellogg’s, the recall of their cereals is due to, "Consumers should not eat the recalled products because they do not meet quality standards." The reason that the recall is taking place is due to an odd smell and flavor that could cause nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea     – Associated Content 

Nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea…hmmm…  Well, one of these I know has happened to me a lot after eating any of the four aforementioned cereals but I always assumed that was because I was secretly being fed some sort of chemical compound that gave me superpowers.
