    Just before the agency announced the outbreak, the Kellogg Co. announced a recall of 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages of the cereal with a “best if used by” date from June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, according to a statement. Twenty-four of the sick patients have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported, according to the CDC. New York has reported the highest number of cases — seven — while California, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania have each reported five cases. The other states involved in the outbreak have reported between one and four related illnesses. Health officials have identified Kellogg’s Honey...

    The White House says the changes could save $214 billion over a decade. “The Budget proposes to combine the traditional retail-based SNAP electronic benefit with the direct provision of nutritious and 100 percent American-grown USDA Foods to participating households. This cost-effective proposal maintains our commitment to helping needy families avoid hunger while generating substantial savings,” the budget said. Households receiving $90 per month or more would get a portion in shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit, vegetables, and meat, poultry or fish. The remainder of the benefit would go onto the debit card...

    You may want to rethink having that bowl of corn flakes for breakfast. New research by experts at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles show that cereal is making people obese. Published in the journal of Nature Communications, the paper states that chemical ingredients commonly used in breakfast cereals are having distressing effects on our bodies. Looking at the effects of three different chemicals commonly ingested or exposed to humans, they found that each one was damaging the hormones needed to communicate between our brains and our stomach. When all three were combined, the damage was worse. One of the...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Police need help finding a woman who poisoned her husband's food for months and then skipped town before her sentencing date. Andrea Araceli Heming, 49, pleaded guilty to tainting her husband's food with a substance called boric acid. The poison is usually used to kill cockroaches. "It slices your intestinal tract from the throat down," the victim, Ralph Heming, said. "If you start passing blood or spitting up blood, you're dead."

    Hillary is now speaking with ManBearPig at Miami-Dade College in Kendall, Florida. You can watch it HERE yet amazingly even though this is the busiest of feeds, LESS than 500 watching now. Compare that to Trump speeches which have over 20,000 watching on just one feed. Anyway, your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to estimate the paltry crowd size at this speech. Hillary started right off claiming that there was an overflow crowd. Really? And how small was this venue?

    Tiny Toast is designed to appeal to younger, health-conscious consumers because it's one of the few breakfast cereal on the market flavored with real fruit and has no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors. It will join the Minnesota-based company's already formidable lineup of cereals that have been part of American breakfasts for decades such as Cheerios, Trix and Lucky Charms.

    Why aren't millennials eating cereal? Apparently, it's just too much work. Almost 40% of millennials surveyed by Mintel said that cereal was an inconvenient breakfast choice, because they have to clean up after eating it, reports the New York Times. Instead, younger consumers are turning to convenient options with minimal cleanup that can be eaten on the go, from yogurt to fast-food breakfast sandwiches. Cereal sales dropped 5% from 2009 to 2014, despite the fact that more Americans are eating breakfast than ever before. ...

    Few things are as painless to prepare as cereal. Making it requires little more than pouring something (a cereal of your choice) into a bowl and then pouring something else (a milk of your choice) into the same bowl. Eating it requires little more than a spoon and your mouth. The food, which Americans still buy $10 billion of annually, has thrived over the decades, at least in part, because of this very quality: Its convenience. And yet, for today's youth, cereal isn't easy enough. On Monday, the New York Times published a story about the breakfast favorite, and the...

    If you think your Thursday was bad, just bear this in mind: someone woke up, went to their job where they pretend to be Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes‘ mascot Tony the Tiger on the internet, and had to ask people to stop sending them anthropomorphic animal porn. So three days ago Kellogg‘s started blocking the furries en masse. Even ones who weren’t posting porn. Even, it seems, ones who hadn’t even said anything to Tony on Twitter. But some stayed with Tony, and essentially ended up DDoSing the account with complaints about the blocking, requests for sex and a lot of...

    A Williamsburg man ran a $1.5 million heroin ring out of his apartment — with the help of 25 others including family members, a Manhattan court employee and a wannabe drug counselor, prosecutors alleged Thursday. Ringleader Jose Tavera’s apartment at 778 Driggs Ave. was the epicenter for the family-run cartel that involved his mom, sister, brother and cousins, who supplied and distributed drugs and laundered the proceeds, ​said Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson. Tavera’s sister Sheila Taveras, 26, allegedly bagged and transported the heroin, while his mother, Haydee Cordero, 46, deposited cash from the sales into her Chase bank account, prosecutors...

    The Kellogg's cereal company is experiencing a backlash from Christian consumers who claim they'll no longer buy the company's products after it helped sponsor the Atlanta gay pride march in mid-October by using the beloved Frosted Flakes mascot, Tony the Tiger, in a pro-LGBT advertisement in the event's pride guide. "Wear your stripes with pride," the Kellogg's ad states, highlighting the word "pride" in large-font rainbow-colored letters, while Tony the Tiger stands to the right with his arms crossed and a familiar smile on his face. The American Family Association, a traditional Christian values activist group, posted a picture of...

According to the American Family Association’s (AFA) Facebook page, “[t]hey even put an ad in the ‘Pride Guide.’” Also displayed on the ad is Human Rights Campaign (HRC), who considers Kellogg one of the “BEST PLACES TO WORK,” due to its support "for LGBT Equality."

    Many cereals, snack bars and other foods tout that they’re fortified with vitamins and minerals, but it turns out, adding that into food may be dangerous, according to a new report by the Environmental Working Group. The organization found that nearly half of kids 8 or younger consume potentially dangerous levels of vitamin A, zinc and niacin due to over-fortification. The researchers fortified 1,550 cereals and 1,000 snack bars and found that 114 had 30 percent or more of the adult daily value for some vitamins and minerals, which can cause liver damage, skeletal abnormalities, hair loss and more in...

    Tony the Tiger is not doing so grrrrreat... Kellogg Co, the world's largest maker of breakfast cereals, says it will cut about 7 percent of its workforce and slash capacity by 2017, after reporting another quarterly decline in sales in its cereals business. The company's cereals business has been battling stiff competition from General Mills and private-label cereal brands. Increasing popularity of yoghurt, frozen egg sandwiches and other breakfast items has also hit the business. Sales at Kellogg's U.S. morning foods business, which includes cereals such as All-Bran, Coco Pops and Froot Loops, fell 2.2 percent in the third quarter....

    A Canadian couple are coining it in after changing the name of their breakfast cereal to 'Holy Crap'. Brian and Corin Mullins developed their gluten-free, vegan, organic cereal to address Mr Mullins' allergies. It was originally called 'Hapi Food' cereal and sold only at the Sechelt Farmers Market on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia. But after one of their very first customers said: "Holy Crap... this is amazing!", they changed the name to Holy Crap. Sales increased 1000% - from ten bags a day to over one hundred.
