Single-Serve Cinnamon Toast Crunch Recalled for Salmonella Risk

Minnesota-based General Mills has issued a voluntary recall of 168 cases of single-serve reduced-sugar Cinnamon Toast Crunch because the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The problem was discovered when a supplier notified General Mills that an ingredient used in the Cinnamon Toast Crunch product had tested positive for the bacteria.

The cereal subject to the recall was distributed to food service such as cafeterias and restaurants, said the company in its recall announcement.

No other types of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or General Mills cereal are affected by the recall.

No illnesses have been linked to the recalled product, according to the food company.

The recalled cereal packages are marked with one of two “Better if used by” dates : either 31AUG2013 or 02SEP2013.

Food service operators who purchased the recalled product is urged to dispose of it and to call General Mills for a replacement.
