Kellogg is recalling boxes of Mini-Wheats cereal due to the “unlikely but possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part,” according to the company.

“Although there have been no reports of any injuries, Kellogg initiated a voluntarily recall of certain packages of Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal as a precautionary measure,” company spokesman Kris Charles said in a statement. “At Kellogg, our number one priority is the quality and safety of our foods and we take this situation very seriously.”

The recall covers roughly 282,000 cases of Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size cereal with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the best-before date. Most of the recalled products are cereal boxes, but some are single-serving bowls.

Blogger’s note: In that case, they should recall them all (and stop producing such highly processed products that wreak havoc on our health, addicting hundreds of millions of unwitting Americans).

(Iron filings are routinely added as part of a mineral dietary supplement in all commercial cereals, flours and pastas but this form is of extremely low bio-availability and more poisonous than nutritious. “BUYER BE AWARE!”)
