RECALL: Kellogg's Breakfast Cereals


Kellogg’s announced today a voluntary recall of several of their breakfast cereals that are marketed to kids.

Kellogg’s Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Froot Loops, and Honey Smacks, and Apple Jacks are being recalled because of an “uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package.” While the risk of serious health problems is low, says Kellogg’s, the issue could cause temporary nausea and diarrhea.

When checking your cereal boxes, note this: Only boxes with a “KN” following the “Better if used by” date are affected. If your box has a KM, it’s not part of the recall. No products in Canada are affected.

Kellogg’s is offering a free replacement of any affected product. Call the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163. For more details on the recall, visit the Kellogg Company Media Room.
