Frosted & Unfrosted Mini-Wheats Recalled for Metal Fragments

The Kellogg's cereal possibly contains fragments of metal mesh from a manufacturing part.

You better not eat your Mini-Wheats if they have a certain code and date on them.

Kellogg's initiated a voluntary recall of cereal due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part, the company said.

Products covered by the recall 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.

So I just heard about this recall, and I pulled my empty box of 24 OZ Frosted Mini Wheats from the recycle bin, and low and behold, UPC code 3800031834 is on the box. I have been eating from this box for about two weeks now, and no problems to report. Not worried about it, and I want more mini wheats, but I cannot buy it. OH WELL!!!!

Just went to our local Wal-Mart and found out about the recall as I was trying to buy a new box. I just finished a box with the code 38000-31834 24 oz. box. Bobby Carmichael
