"Participants should review their trading activity for potentially erroneous trades and request adjudication through the Clearly Erroneous process within the applicable timeframe for filing pursuant to the rule," Nasdaq said in a release.

The unusual trading activity comes two days after Mondelez International, formerly Kraft Foods, spun off its North American grocery business into Kraft Foods Group.
