Certain Kellogg's products contain beef, Hindus and other recently discovered, prompting the Universal Society of Hinduism in Reno to demand an apology from the multinational food company while calling for the resignation of Kellogg's CEO, John A. Bryant.

Kellogg's had not labeled its products with information about gelatin derived from beef and pork being present in some of their products, 24/7 Wall St. noted, adding that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not appear to require labeling of gelatin.

This meant that Hindus, along with vegetarians and vegans across the world, were unknowingly consuming animal byproducts.

President of Universal Society of Hinduism in Reno Rajan Zed said it was "shocking for Hindus to learn that some of the cereals, etc., they had been eating for years contained beef while there was no mention of beef under the ingredients mentioned on the boxes/packages," according to 24/7 Wall St.

The Ayurveda-Florida and Dhanvantari Ayurveda Center recently posted an email received from Kellogg's on their website, regarding the presence of gelatin in their products.

In the correspondence, Ana Lara of the consumer affairs department confirmed this, stating that gelatin was often used to add texture of products.

"Kellogg's(R) Frosted Mini-Wheats(R) and Kellogg's(R) Rice Krispies Treats(R) cereals contain type B gelatin, which is derived from beef," she wrote. "Whenever marshmallow ingredients are present in a Kellogg's cereal brand, the marshmallow contains type A gelatin, which is derived from pork. Kellogg's Krave Snack Bars also contain type A gelatin derived from pork sources."

Furthermore, Lara explained that type B gelatin, which was derived from beef sources, was present in Kellogg's Frosted Pop-Tarts, Kellogg's Frosted Pop-Tarts, Snak-Stix, all varieties of Kellogg's Pop-Tarts Pastry Swirls, and Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Minis with Yogurt Icing.

"Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats Squares contain type A gelatin in the marshmallow, which is derived from pork sources," she added.

This follows a statement released by Zed condemning the use of tallow in banknotes by Bank of England.

"Consumption of beef is highly conflicting to Hindu beliefs and it is certainly banned from entering Hindu religious centers," the statement said. "Cow, the seat of many deities, is sacred and has long been venerated in Hinduism."
