Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts are being withdrawn from the market due to the discovery of the illegal additive titanium dioxide, which can cause cancer.

Titanium dioxide was previously used as an additive in food, but in 2022 it was forbidden to use titanium dioxide in food products in Norway and the EU.
The products are imported from the USA via an importer in the Netherlands and sold in candy and toy stores, smaller grocery stores and kiosks, writes the Norwegian Food Safety Authority in a press release.
Customers who have purchased the products can throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased.
The products are sold in the following stores:
- Dropsen (Sandnes and Stavanger)
- Candy Store, Bergen
- Support Media
- Ringo Hvaltorvet
- Haugesund Godteland
- Quick buy Horten
- Lekia Vinterbro
