Cereal manufacturer Kellogg's has announced a product recall due to concerns over consumers choking.

Boxes of ‘Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Chocolate Flavour’ have been recalled because they may contain small hard lumps of food which have formed in the product.

This makes the product unsafe to eat as the lumps could cause dental damage or act as a choking hazard.

The recall has been applied to 450g packs of the chocolate flavour corn flakes with all date codes from 6 December 2024 to 28 April 2025.

Consumers that have bought the product have been advised not to eat it and to return the pack for a full refund. No other Kellogg’s products have been impacted.

Meanwhile, European food importer and distributor Lituanica UK has recalled a meat product after Listeria monocytogenes was discovered.

The recall applies to 400g packs (although the weight can vary) of Daivida Rokiskio Mesine branded pork tongue and ear rolls that feature a best before date of 23 May 2024, 30 May 2024, 6 June 2024 or 13 June 2024.

Lituanica UK has issued point of sale notices in all stores that sell the product, warning people that purchased the roll not to consume it and instead return to the store where they bought it for a refund.

On the notice, Lituanica UK noted that no other Daivida products have been impacted and apologised for the inconvenience caused.

People that consume products contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can experience flu-like symptoms such as a high temperature, muscle aches or pains, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. In rare cases, the infection can be more severe and lead to serious complications including meningitis.

People over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems are most vulnerable to Listeria infection.
