Kellogg Company Announces a Change to the Allergen statement on two flavors of Special K® Snack Bars
The Kellogg Company would like you to know that starting in November 2018; Kellogg will be changing the allergen statement on two flavors of Snack Bars under the Special K® label.
The flavors, Special K® Red Berries Chewy Snack Bars and Special K® Salted Pretzel Chocolate Chewy Snack Bars will now include a “May Contain Peanuts and Tree Nuts” statement in addition to the existing allergen statement of “Contains Soy, Milk and Wheat Ingredients”. The new allergen advisory statement for Special K® Red Berries Chewy Snack Bars and Special K® Salted Pretzel Chocolate Chewy Snack Bars will state: “Contains Soy, Milk and Wheat Ingredients. May Contain Peanuts and Tree Nuts”.
Kellogg Company has a commitment to allergen management. While we understand and apologize for the impact this change has on some consumers, our internal risk assessment indicates that changes in production may increase the likelihood of cross-contact with peanut and tree nut allergens for the two above listed products. Because product formulations may change from time to time, consumers are strongly encouraged to read the package label prior to every purchase.
