Kellogg's Mini-Wheats are a little crunchier than usual. And that's not a good thing.
Kellogg's has issued a recall of nearly 3 million boxes of its Bite Size Frosted and Unfrosted Mini-Wheats cereal because of a manufacturing problem that left some packages contaminated with bits of metal.
Yup: Bits of metal. Not exactly the breakfast of champions.
"We have initiated a voluntary recall due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part," the company said in a statement. "Recalled products include only 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."
The boxes have "use by" dates between April 1 and Sept. 21 of next year. The recalled cereal was distributed nationwide.
