An Elk Valley resident found an interesting surprise in her son’s cereal on Saturday morning — a screw.

The box of Froot Loops cereal came from the Overwaitea in Sparwood and was brought there immediately for inspection. Manager Ryan Ogden took care of the matter promptly.

“We take these matters very seriously and I took preventative measures with this incident,” said Ogden.

Ogden said that the lot code on the box, which indicates what batch number it was made from, was compared to the boxes that were currently on the shelf to ensure that no more of that product would go out to the public.

According to the resident, who posted on Facebook’s Elk Valley Garage Sale page, Ogden provided her with a $25 gift card and contact was made at the Kellogg’s head office.
