Kellogg Company announced a voluntary recall of the cereals Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks due to off-flavor and smell coming from the package liner.
In a press release, Kellogg Company, in collaboration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the "voluntary recall of certain breakfast cereals due to an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package."
It is a nationwide recall in the United States, and does not include Canada. To identify cereals being recalled, look for a "KN" prior to the expiration date on the package. Those products designated "KM" are NOT included in the recall.
The following is a list of specific breakfast cereals included in the recall along with details associated with the particular product:

There are no other Kellogg's products included in the recall.
Kellogg Company notes, "While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea."
The press release also includes an apology issued by David Mackay, president and chief executive officer, Kellogg Company, who said, "We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace."
In a consumer alert issued by Kellogg, consumers can find answers to various question such as: Are the products involved in the recall safe for consumption? My product is included in the recall but it doesn't smell or taste unusual. We have eaten some of the product already, is that okay? and What is the substance that was identified in the liner of the recalled products?
In addition, those with questions or who would like a replacement may contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time.
