Kellogg's Frosted and Unfrosted Mini-Wheats Recalled for Metal Fragments

The cereal possibly contains fragments of metal mesh from a manufacturing part.

You better not eat your frosted Mini-Wheats if they have a certain code on them.

Kellogg's has initiated a voluntary recall of cereal due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part, the company said.

Products covered by the recall 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.

Thanks for the info, Joan. I bought one of the affected boxes at Target in Foster City a few weeks ago. Ron, totally agree with you . . . what is going on with quality control these days??

Do we get to exchange our recalled box for a new one?

I have a new box in the pantry - not one of the codes listed above, but I still am hesitant to eat them.

I've purchased and consumed both Frosted Mini Wheats and Bite-Sized Frosted Mini Wheats a few times over the last two to three weeks. I wish I still had the boxes so I could tell whether they were in the affected batches, but those have already done out with the recycling.
