Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from FDA on February 20, 2013.

Heartland® Brands is voluntarily recalling two varieties of its granola cereals in the United States, Bahamas, Bermuda, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Israel and Trinidad, as a precaution due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh in an ingredient. The ingredient is a grain blend, and the problem was discovered and reported by the ingredient supplier, Dakota Specialty Milling.
The two Heartland® cereal varieties are:

  • Heartland® Harvest Spice Granola Cereal — 14 oz.; UPC 024300 090394; Best If Used By dates from 20130326 (March 26, 2013) through 20130910 (Sept. 10, 2013).
  • Heartland® Fruit & Nut Harvest Granola Cereal — 14 oz.; UPC 024300 090387; Best If Used By dates from 20130325 (March 25, 2013) through 20130910 (Sept. 10, 2013).

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to discard the cereal but retain the Best If Used By code and contact our Consumer Affairs Department toll-free at 888-881-6769, Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. ET and Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. ET, for a full refund of the purchase price.
