FDA to Kellogg: One of your facilities is contaminated with listeria. Clean it up.

How do you say "They're grrrrreat!" in Chinese? Kellogg, maker of Frosted Flakes, Pop-Tarts and Eggo waffles, among numerous other not-so-great-for-you snacks and breakfast foods, has formed a joint venture to sell its stuff in China as early as next year.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- Kellogg says it will pull health claims from its Rice Krispies cereal box due to the public's growing concern about swine flu. The food company began adding antioxidants to the cereal last year and noted on the cereal box that these antioxidants help support the immune system.

Kellogg Co. said it was conducting a six-month test in Detroit of new cereal boxes that are shorter and deeper than traditional boxes. Kellogg said the new size is the most significant innovation in cereal boxes since the 1950s. The tests affect the majority of Kellogg's branded cereals, including Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes and Special K. The new boxes use about 8% less packaging material per box. The company made the change to address consumers' concerns that the taller, thinner boxes now used don't fit well in kitchen cupboards, said John Ferro, Kellogg's director of commercialization.
