Briefs in a Brief

Battle Creek, Mich. ( – Emboldened by its success against Microsoft, the U.S. Justice Department yesterday accused cereal giant Kellogg’s of “anti-competitive, anti-consumer” practices related to the bundling of small boxes of different cereals into Kellogg’s Variety Packs.

According to Justice, the 10-box variety packs force consumers to purchase brands that are “unnecessary and gratuitous,” such as Corn Flakes and Special K, just to get the Froot Loops. Kellogg’s immediately rejected the allegations, calling Attorney General Janet Reno an “oatmeal eater.”
