Up to three million boxes of cereal have been recalled by Kellogg’s because they may contain metal fragments. The foreign material is pieces of flexible metal mesh from a faulty machine part, but the company says the chances of the material getting into anyone’s cereal bowl are very low. The recalled Kellogg’s products 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. Specific information on each cereal brand include: Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original cereal- • UPC 3800031829 – 18-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB • UPC 3800073444 – 18-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB • UPC 3800031834 – 24-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB • UPC 3800046954 – 30-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB • UPC 3800031921 – 70-ounce club store carton with Better if Used Before Dates APR 01 2013 KB – JUL 29 2013 KB • UPC 3800004961 – single-serve bowl with Better if Used Before Dates between 04013 KB – 09213 KB • UPC 3800021993 – single-serve carton with Better if Used Before Dates between AP 04013 – AP 09213 or FK 04013 – FK 09213 Kellogg’s Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size cereal- • UPC 3800021983 – single serve carton with Better if Used Before Dates between FK 04013 – FK 09213 • UPC 3800035982 -18-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB

      Well it go into mine!!! Only it was Kellogg’s Raisin Bran instead of Mini Wheats — ALMOST same UPC code, but with same expiration dates.

    You could send a few coupons for the inconvenience that was caused by this.  Mytimeall@aol.com

    I have a box of Kellogg’s Raisin Bran that has metal in it!!!   I bit down on one small piece and did not continue to eat it.
    I want to see how to have it checked.

  • Can metal in the Kellogg’s frosted mini wheats cause illness of any kind?  I consumed almost a whole box’of affected cereal before I knew of this problem.

  • I love me my Mini-wheats….even if they are useless in terms of food value. In fact, the metal might just add something of food value to them!  😉
