“It is important to note that any products that could be potentially impacted would be very limited and past their expiration dates,” the company said. It says the products that were potentially impacted include Rice Krispies Treats, granola clusters used in some products and puffed rice treats that it no longer makes.
“We are outraged by this completely unacceptable situation, and we will work closely with authorities to prosecute to the full extent of the law,” the company said.
Kellogg said it is still working to identify the individual in the video.MORE NEWS: Gun Store Shutdowns In California During Early Days Of Pandemic Ruled Illegal By 9th Circuit Court
