3 Million Boxes of Kellogg’s Mini Wheats Recalled For Metal Fragments

By News Desk | October 11, 2012

Up to three million boxes of cereal have been recalled by Kellogg’s because they may contain metal fragments.

The foreign material is pieces of flexible metal mesh from a faulty machine part, but the company says the chances of the material getting into anyone’s cereal bowl are very low.

The recalled Kellogg’s products include Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the Best If Used Before date. Specific information on each cereal brand include:
