The following is a British kashrus notice from the London Beth Din on July 28, 2009.

There has been some confusion over the Kellogg's entry under ‘Cereal, Fruit & Nut Bars’ on p.8 of the Kosher Nosh Guide Summer 2009. The listing of all varieties as ‘NK’ refers ONLY to the cereal bars and not to any Kellogg’s cereals (which are not included in the Nosh Guide). Later versions of the Nosh Guide have been amended to make this distinction clear. To check which Kellogg’s cereals are kosher, visit the Kosher Product Search on the LBD website at www.theus.org.uk/jewish_living/keeping_kosher/keeping_kosher/kosher_product_search.
Ed. note: In the US, Kellogg's cereals and bars are certified as kosher by the Rabbinical Council of New England when bearing a "K" or "KD".
