Kellogg Denies Having Anything To Do With Pringles Reddit Posts

Getting thousands, maybe millions of Internet users to view, like, share, and talk about your product isn’t easy. Any number of companies have tried to anonymously post “viral” content in the hope that it will spread quickly (and without having to pay for additional ads).

In an attempt to make their company one big, happy, snacky family, Kellogg is shelling out $2.7 billion in straight-up cash to buy the Pringles line from Procter & Gamble.

My Frozen Waffles Stink, As Does Company's Response

Jumbo Rice Krispies Aren't Crispy, Kellogg Admits As Much

Blaine was crestfallen that Jumbo Rice Krispies didn’t live up to his dreams of a bigger, better, Krispie-er version of the regular Rice Krispies he knew and loved. He found them mealy and soggy, and complained to the company, which pretty much admitted he was right — at least that the cereal isn’t a jumbo-sized version of the original. [More]

Kellogg Hints That Cocoa Krispies Will Save Your Kids From Swine Flu

Remember when the FDA was like, “Hey, General Mills, you’ve turned Cheerios into a drug?” This sort of reminds us of that. Now Kellogg is claiming on their new packaging that Cocoa Krispies will help your child’s “IMMUNITY.”

Hey, There's Listeria In The Eggo Waffles

Well, %#$% there is listeria in the Eggo Waffles. A sample of buttermilk Eggo waffles tested positive for listeria, says the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The product wasn’t shipped to the marketplace, but they’re recalling a few batches that did — just in case.

Kellogg Agrees To Tone Down "Frosted Mini-Wheats Are Brain Food" Nonsense

What? It turns out that giving your kid a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats will not guarantee a nearly 20% uptick in classroom attentiveness, despite what Kellogg claims on packaging and TV? I probably should have figured that out on my own, but I rarely eat Frosted Mini-Wheats for breakfast, so I am quite likely retarded. Luckily for all of us, the cereal company just reached an agreement with the FTC to stop misleading consumers with its faux-scientific claims.

Kellogg's Brand Reputation Takes A Hit After Dumping Phelps?

Kellogg's Brand Reputation Takes A Hit After Dumping Phelps?

Supposedly, Kellogg’s “brand reputation” is in the gutter after canning Phelps over the pot photo, slipping from #9 to #83 in a list of 5,600 companies.

As Salmonella Recall Expands, FDA Warns Consumers To "Postpone Eating" Many Peanut Butter Products

The FDA still hasn’t tracked down all that yummy salmonella-contaminated peanut butter, and until they do, they want consumers to stop eating all “commercially-prepared or manufactured peanut butter-containing products and institutionally-served peanut butter.” No, this doesn’t mean the jar of Skippy on your shelf, but it does seem to cover cookies, cakes, and ice cream; pretty much any shrink-wrapped peanut butter snack.

Food Frauds: Special K Fruit & Yogurt And DanActive "Immunity" Drink

Food marketing is largely made up of lies, but everyone already knows that. The CSPI, however, likes to find foods that are especially fraudulent in their marketing claims. These made us laugh for some reason, so we thought we’d share them with you.
