Found a piece of glass as I was eating my cereal, got the two for 7 bucks at Walmart. I can't believe this, I was chewing cereal when I felt something hard and sharp in my mouth. I am throwing my two cereal boxes away, now I know how people end up in hospitals due to glass in their bellies. I even scratch the box with this tiny piece of glass just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. Very disturbing.
This has been the 3rd time I have found maggots in my cereal. I first thought it was the store I was buying it from but this time I bought from a different store. Usually they were just on the outside of the bag inside the box. This time however, they were inside. I have to find a new favorite cereal and from reading other reviews, made by a different company.
I recently see a Special K cereal commercial advertising their new "Special K Nourish with Probiotics/Peaches & Berries", so considering both my sons, as well as myself, always enjoyed Special K Strawberries, also Fruit & Yogurt. I had to get a box. Wow was I WRONG!!! Aside from the fact that I paid a ridiculously $4.49 for a TINY 10.5 oz BOX!!! I open the box to find 95% of the contents being the flakes, 4% being a BUTT LOAD of these nasty, HARD AS ROCKS, "probiotic yogurt" chunks, with the remaining 1% being these TEENY TINY (like the size of the box) SPECKS of, what reads on the back of the box, 'cause I had no idea what was what, being how small and minute they are... Peaches, blueberries and raspberries!! Seriously Kellogg's?!!!
I think I can speak for a lot of consumers when I say, with each box sold, you're getting at least $4.49 out of us. But you can not afford to add bigger, better and tastier products??? Although, as I read some of these reviews, my complaint is small (like your products) in comparison to these other reviews, finding BUGS, MOLD, INFESTATIONS... REALLY KELLOGG'S?? Word of mouth is vital, these complaints may not seem important to you now but when enough consumers hear of all your nasty products, you will no longer have nasty products to sell nor make money off of!! Kellogg's... You all need to make all of these and future complaints right, sooner than later!!! You all (Kellogg's CEO/PRESIDENT/PR Dept./ HR dept./FACTORY employees... So on and so on) should be ashamed of yourselves!!! Disgusting!!! Lazy!!!
As I was pouring my 10-year-old son a bowl of Frosted Flakes I looked in and I saw this white looking substance which looked like some kind of broken pill or something. I know it's not a clump of sugar. Never again will I purchase Kellogg's products. How disgusting!!
I opened up a brand new box of brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts and when I pulled open a package one of them was half eaten. Looks like mouth sized bites taken out but can't be sure. Very disappointed as I love Kellogg's products.

Purchased a family size box of Kellogg's a few weeks ago instead of the usual Post brand. Yuck! Unfortunately, the K brand tastes like the cardboard box they came in. My wife asked me if I wanted anything at the store. I said, "Yes", since the raisin brand is hardly edible (unless I were a horse). I asked her to get those frosted Mini Wheats I haven't had for a while. Just had a bowl. Definitely different than I remember. Probably the company changed something to make the cost cheaper. Obviously, no group taste testing before launching the "new and improved" product. I'm wondering if Kellogg's products are now being outsourced to some other country?
When I took a bite and felt the hair in my mouth it was disgusting so I scoop it out. I thought maybe it was mine but impossible. Is black color thats not the color of my hair. My is light brown and it was stick to the waffle. I bought the Eggo 72 count from Costco about 1 months ago. We dont eat frozen food often but I thought of giving a try. We are about half box so I cant return. This box was purchase on 1/5/18.
Opened a recently purchased box of Rice Krispies and have eaten from the box a couple of times. This morning a 1.5 inch chunk of something came out of the box... Just seeing it made me sick. Please explain how and what this is... Expect contact immediately. Very upset.
Upon chewing my breakfast which was Kellogg's Raisin Bran, I bit down on a very hard object; I pushed it out my mouth with my tongue only to find it was a piece of wood!! I immediately checked the Kellogg's cereal box for contact info and sent an email as well as place a called to Consumer Affairs!! Thank God I don't have small children in the house; but those of you who do please take caution and inspect your child's food!!
Recently bought CHEEZ-IT snacks and swallowed something hard and subsequently vomited blood and had to be taken to the ER. I was sent a cheque of less than half my total medical expenses. I am currently in contact with a lawyer about building a class action suit.
K Protein Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch - The name of the product alone is a mouthful, so I was expecting a delicious mouthful when I decided to try it. My advice to Kellogg's is to stick to the original recipe and do not try to add, subtract, multiply or divide!! First of all, it tastes awful and then I felt like I was clumping down on rocks!!!
Frosted Mini-Wheats from Costco: Both of my daughters were eating this and have ended up with migraines and vomiting shortly after. What made me realize the connection was the disgusting moldy (looked like poop) piece of mini wheat that my 5 year old ate half of before realizing what she ate. 24 hours later she's vomiting green throw up all over in her sleep! So scary and I called Kellogg's to inform them. They are sending a Costco gift card. I guess all they can do is get enough people sick before taking action. Please call them if you are possibly sick from their products. Here is their number listed on the box 1-800-962-1413.
When I opened a brand new box of Kellogg’s Mini Wheats I was disgusted to find a small bug on one of the cereal pieces. It looked like some sort of worm... very grossed out. Immediately threw the whole box out. GROSS!
The company has responded and said they will investigate how this happened. So I will mark this as resolved.
We bought a new box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats from Costco. Once we get home and open the first package, the rice krispies has some grey stuff attached on it and it looks disgusting. Then we contacted Kellogg's by sending the photos to remind them they should do better quality control since many of consumers are kids, but they just ignored and did not give any reply. Before they can address their product safety issues, I would not recommend anybody buy their food for kids.
My family has been purchasing Frosted Flakes for years. Recently, have noticed random hard particles in the cereal. We have bought various boxes in Virginia and South Carolina and have experienced the same recent problem. These particles are dangerous to one’s teeth. Be careful!
I made myself a bowl of Raisin Bran yesterday and almost immediately I had severe stomach cramps. I didn't put the two together until I fixed a bowl today. I could only eat two bites. The first bite was normal but the second bite was so bitter and I still have a strange bitter tingling in my mouth. Could it be poison? I'm very concerned and not sure what to do. I feel strange as well.
On buying Kellogg's Bran Flakes on two occasions lately I've found that there is between 3 grams and 1 to 1&1/2 inches of mushy powder at bottom of packet! I wondered if anyone else gets annoyed about this or is it just me! You expect a little crumbs and broken flakes but not powdered mush! They are not the cheapest breakfast cereal.
We've been eating Kellogg's Corn Flakes for years. Last month we bought a box and noticed that there were very hard particles in the corn flakes that would not soften in the milk and were quite painful when biting down on them. I was afraid I was seriously going to break a tooth. The particles didn't look any different than the rest of the cereal, so you really couldn't avoid them - They were like little rocks embedded in the cereal. Well, we thought that maybe this was just a "one-off", but after opening another box we found the same problem. I think we're done with Kellogg's Corn Flakes.
I'm so disgusted! I have multiple boxes of cereal in my cabinet & keep my cereal bags closed right for freshness. Well today I opened my bag of Blueberry Kellogg's Mini Wheats and found 20+ dead BUGS floating in my milk and mini wheats!!! I took a look in the bag and there's NESTS, BLACK TURD NESTS, w/ bugs hibernated inside and jumping insects inside! I have other cereal but all of them have zero bugs.
I have eaten these bars for many years, and normally love them. While out of town at a Houston Walmart, we purchased two 12-count boxes of the Special K Strawberry Protein Meal Bars. The first box was fine. The second box: ate one bar - tasted like chocolate! Later ate another - still tasted like chocolate! Checked the bar - usual red "fruit pieces" in there; nothing looked like chocolate. I know the strawberry bars are flavored with strawberry extract, so I guess these were flavored by chocolate. I despise anything chocolate for breakfast; there was no strawberry flavor at all. Looked at this website, and started feeling nauseous after reading reviews of other products. Definitely not happy!
This is the most disgusting and the worst experience I ever had in my life. I am 7 months pregnant. Was craving for something sweet and I decided to buy the chocolate pop tarts and as I was eating there goes an alive bug crawling in there. I threw up on the spot. I was on the train on my way home from work. I called Kellogg’s customer service. They kept hanging up on me. It’s just disgusting and I hope I didn't swallow any of the bug other than what I saw. I have the pic and video recorded.
At first Fiber One Oats and Caramel disappear from the shelves then when they come back it seems they have added little bits of stone to them. It is such a disappointed, but I finally bit into one of these tiny rock-hard "things" with my crowned-tooth and now I am having pain in the area. I once loved these bars, but no longer.
Right now they have a promo where if you buy 2 specially marked boxes of Sugar Frosted Flakes you can get a free $5.00 Gas Coupon. But... their email address fails half the time and the other half you get a message saying the photo of your receipt is unclear, or it is missing the date, or it appears you have attached more than 1 photo, or the price is missing, etc, etc. Clearly, they just want you to buy 2 boxes of their crappy icing sugar coated cereal so they can make more money. Has anyone actually received a $5.00 gas coupon? I think not and have given up trying, like anyone else would after 6 fails!
My child was eating his cereal (Froot Loops) this morning when he came in my room crying saying something was in the cereal. It was almost like a Brown tar like substance that smelt like coffee. I called the company. After about a 10 minute hold Kellogg's told me that it had to do with some kind of fruit something. Waiting on confirmation email. Can't find any related articles. Any information Would-be great.
Bought a box of Kellogg's rice crispy treats at BJ'S for my 6 yr old son, when he opened the 2nd one he came to me saying there's a hair on it. When I looked sure enough there was a hair baked into it. He loves them. I told him check it when eating. Y'all should do the same.
I opened a new box of Kellogg's rice krispies cereal to make rice krispies treats. As I was measuring the rice krispies cereal into a bowl, I noticed that some of the rice krispies had a black edge to them. Then a big chunk of black stuff came out of the box. Don't know what it is. Threw the cereal away. I found this site because I was looking to see what the black stuff was and someone at this site had taken a picture of the same exact thing.
The cereal box for "Fruit and Yogurt" has a picture on the front showing a strawberry, red raspberries, and a blackberry. The photo of the cereal in the bowl appears to have something like dried fruit, maybe a cranberry. I did not read the contents before purchasing. If I had, would not have bought. Contents says it contains "dried apples", and "natural and artificial flavor". I did not pay for this overpriced cereal to get apples. When I called yesterday to register a complaint, the customer service rep offered to send me a coupon toward a future purchase. I will not be buying this product ever again, and maybe not any Kellogg's products either. Upon my insistence, she agreed to send me a voucher for a replacement box of Kellogg's cereal. The picture is totally misleading, and I will also be contacting the FDA, as I informed the service rep.
My reason for this review is that I bought Kellogg's Muesli with dry fruits. Instead of muesli and dry fruits, I found cornflakes and coconut pieces in the packet. They are making us fools. I will never buy Kellogg's food anymore. They are just making business. Very disappointed and will be posting on social media for everyone to read.
My reason for this review is that I bought a box of cereal which contains large balls of what appears to be burnt cereal and most definitely smells like burnt something. At first I could tell if the material was burnt cereal or rat poop. I'm still not sure of which one it may be. I spit it into a napkin and it's black and charred and most definitely burned. Gross, I typically buy cereal twice a week this experience has changed my choice in brands. Please be aware of this brand especially if your young children are pouring for themselves. This could very well be hazardous. It stuck to my molars.
I never thought I would be one of the consumer this would happen to, but I've just found three tiny #insects in my #Kelloggs frosted mini wheats! I always thought videos of finding such things online were fake and I've obviously been proven wrong today! I feel sick to the stomach... YUCK! Please share this status and spread awareness! One really needs to pay attention when consuming any food nowadays, even if they are from a brand like Kellogg's!
