Kellogg’s to Shutter 39 Distribution Centers as Layoffs Loom

This Oct. 16, 2016, file photo shows the Kellogg booth at an annual dietitians' conference, where company representatives explained the health benefits of their products, in Boston. On its website, amid news of Pop-Tarts and Frosted Flakes, Kellogg touted a distinguished-sounding “breakfast council” of “independent experts” dedicated to guiding its nutritional efforts. Nowhere did it say that Kellogg paid the council members and spoon-fed them talking points about the benefits of cereal and breakfast, according to a copy of a contract and email exchanges obtained by The Associated Press.
