Mexico wants to improve children's diets, so it seized 380,000 boxes of Corn Flakes, Special K and other Kellogg's cereal, claiming the boxes had cartoon drawings on them
Mexico has seized 380,000 boxes of Corn Flakes, Special K and other Kellogg’s cereals, claiming the boxes had cartoon drawings on them in violation of recently enacted laws aimed at improving children’s diets.
While Corn Flakes or Rice Krispies are clearly not the worst thing Mexican children eat, the laws prohibit food companies from using marketing tactics that might appeal to children, like cartoons or mascots.
Mexico’s consumer protection agency also said Friday that the cereal boxes did not clearly state nutritional values like calories, fats, salt or sugar, or didn’t have the proper warning signs for levels of those ingredients that are considered excessive.
Agents raided 75 sales outlets and seized pallets of Kellogg's products there, but the vast majority of the seizures were carried out at a warehouse north of Mexico City.

Those cereals are prectically “health food” compared to much of the typical Mexican diet those children eat.
Is this the Babylon Bee? CEREAL is a threat? But not the human trafficking, the drug gangs?
Shit like this will continue to accelerate.....
Just like the trains in CA being raided of their amazon boxes...
Another sign of acceleration...
Stolen for themselves.
Just ship them back! There is a shortage of those here!
Did the boxes have prizes inside?
Every once in a while I get a hankerin’ for some plain corn flakes. I don’t even mess with Golden Grahams—it’s a huge weakness of mine.
They worry about this but the Cartels have carte blanche to do whatever. SMH
Please note that Mexico enforces THEIR border!
Is this satire? I didn’t see that keyword.
If it’s real, that’s going to be a hard law to enforce.
From my observations, Mexicans absolutely love their cartoons and their talking animals.
What would the Frito Bandito have said about that?
Leave Snap, Crackle and Pop alone!
Not the Bee.
I don’t know how they can even think they can compete with reality these days.
It is actually fairly healthy compared to the others.
On communist earth there can be no fun.
Pot sales going well?
Sounds exactly like what Dems have been whining about always. And wish they could enact.
That will feed a drug cartel for a few years.
ironically cereal was invented as a healthy alternative to traditional breakfast.
