A dead lizard was found in a Pringles tube that is imported and sold by Nongshim Kellogg.

The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced on November 18 that it imposed a temporary sales ban on Pringles potato chips imported from Malaysia’s Super Food Technology Sdn. Bhd. and ordered Nongshim Kellogg to recall products after the body of a lizard was found in a tube of sour cream and onion-flavored Pringles chips.

The recall affects 4,410 kilograms of Pringles chips that were produced in Malaysia on July 2 2016 and expires on July 2 2017.

The food safety agency said, “Regional KFDA offices are recalling the products. We are asking customers who bought the product to return it to a store.”

Anresco Laboratories, an U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-registered food safety lab, recently conducted testing on common foods and found some levels of a cancer-causing chemical known as glyphosate in Kellogg’s cereals such as Special K and Corn Flakes that are also on sale in Korea, raising concerns over the safety.
