Kellogg Company is recalling several  batches of its Special K Red Berries cereal because they might be contaminated with pieces of glass.

The recall, which is limited to the Red Berries type, was announced on Tuesday.

It involves the following packages:

* Regular retail packages, weighing 11.2 ounces, with the UPC code "38000 59923" on them and the date of Dec. 2, 2013.

* Club store packages weighing 37 ounces, with the UPC code "38000 20940" on them and the date of Nov. 30, 2013.

* Twin pack boxes weighing 22.4 ounces, with the UPC code "38000 78356" on them and the date of Nov. 30, 2013.

Kellogg said the recall was precautionary, because glass was found in a single batch of one of the ingredients. The company said that no consumer injuries had been reported as of Tuesday morning.

Consumers who purchased the items being recalled may call Kellogg's consumer center at 800-962-1413, or visit the "contact us" area of the company's website. The company will provide coupons to replace the cereal, and may make arrangements for it to be returned for examination.
