Kellogg Recalls Cereal Due to Metal Fragments

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Kellogg is recalling Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size cereal because boxes may contain fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part.

Products containing the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the Best If Used Before date are being recalled, though no reports of injuries have been associated with them so far. They were sold nationwide.

“At Kellogg, our number one priority is the quality and safety of our foods,” noted Kellogg in a statement. “We have a comprehensive metal control program that includes magnets and metal detection devices. We are working with our metal detector supplier to understand why the equipment did not detect the mesh fragments.”
