And finally… cereal killer

Hundreds of thousands of boxes of Kellogg’s cereals have been seized by Mexican authorities for being too appealing to children.

A new law in Mexico forbids the marketing of sugary foods directly to children, for example with cartoon drawings and mascots, ABC News reports.

Mexico’s consumer protection agency reportedly raided 75 retailers and a major warehouse near Mexico City to seize the cereals.

The agency added that the cereal boxes did not include enough nutritional information or warnings about excessive amounts of sugar.
