Massive Kelloggs Cereal Recall

Massive Kellogg's Cereal Recall via Babble

Taste any metal in your morning cereal?

Another day, another recall, right?

Today’s recall making headlines involves a favorite breakfast cereal and it’s being recalled for a very good reason as it is believed to contain metal.

Yep, metal.

Kellog’s announced a recall of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size citing a “faulty manufacturing part” responsible for the potential pieces of metal mesh that may be found in 2.8 million boxes.

The boxes were distributed to stores nationwide.

Here are the recalled units:

UPC 3800035982 -18-ounce carton with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 01 2013 KB – SEP 21 2013 KB

 

Customers are urged to not consume any of the cereal and contact the hotline found at their website , 1-800-962-1413 to report a recalled box. However, online commenters are saying that reaching a person on the hotline is a nearly impossible task.

Suffice is to say it’s worth losing a few bucks and throwing out the box than eating metal.

Kellogg’s estimates it will cost them between $20 and $30 million dollars in total.
