Kellogg's has announced the company is recalling some of its popular Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal due to the possible presence of metal mesh in some boxes.
The cereal maker said that the voluntary recall is a precautionary measure as there may be some "fragments of flexible metal mesh" from faulty machinery, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) press release issued today.
Varieties of the recalled cereal include Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size. The boxes affected have the letters "KB", "AP" or "FK" before or after the "Best If Used Before" date. The company emphasizes in a discussion post on its recall page that cereal boxes with designations of "KP", “KPA”, “KPB”, "KPC", “KN”, “KNA”, "KNB", “KL”,”KLA”, and "KLB" are not a part of this recall.
According to the company's website, Dr. David Acheson, an internal medicine physician and former Chief Medical Officer at the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), told Kellogg's the likelihood of the mesh fragments entering the food was low and that risk of injury is also low.
For a full description of each recalled product, including UPC, box size and "Better if Used Before Dates" can be found on the FDA's announcement. At this time it appears nine different listings of these two cereals are affected, and were sold at several different grocery stores.
Consumers who would like a replacement of their cereal or who have questions/concerns can contact Kellogg's at 1-800-962-1413 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, Mon. - Fri., or at their website Kelloggs.com, and select "Contact Us" to send a message.
