Abu Dhabi, July 20, 2010: The Field inspections by Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) confirmed that the markets did not sell Kellogg's cornflakes, around which suspicions were raised of late for being unfit for human consumption.
The report of the field operations division of ADFCA stated that the Kellogg's products around which the suspicions centered were not found in the local markets. The inspections were initiated on the basis of numerous complaints from the public about a stink in the products and allergies on their consumption. However, the products with the same batch numbers as reported were not found at all.
ADFCA officials pointed out that the inspections targeted a large number of foodstuff stores of all sizes across the emirate. The American Foodstuff Group (Kellogg's) announced in a press release posted on its website on June 22 that 28 million boxes of breakfast cereals, said to have bad smell and taste, have been recalled.
