Kellogg’s has recalled some of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size products due to the possibility of flexible metal mesh fragments in the food. Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size products with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the Best If Used Before date are part of the recall. The products vary in size from single-serve bowls to large 70-ounce cartons. Use by dates range from April 1, 2013 to Sept. 21, 2013.
A complete list of products and affected UPC codes can be found on the FDA web site. Although the recall information was put out on a Monday on the official Frosted Mini-Wheats Facebook page and Kellogg’s website, many consumers only became aware of the potential problem on the following Thursday. Some were very upset and posted their complaints online. One YouTube user, mdillard13, recorded himself running a rare earth magnet through a plate of the recalled cereal. It was said that a fair amount of the product was picked up by the magnet.
So far, no one has reported any injury from the metal fragments. Concerned customers who have bought the products or have questions should contact the company through the Contact Us feature on Kelloggs.com or call 800-962-1413 from 8 am to 6 pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
