Kellogg's Frosted and Unfrosted Mini-Wheats Recalled for Metal Fragments

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

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

Kellogg's has 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.

My frosted strawberry Mimi wheats have use before apr 2013. UPC. 3800057634. I can't find it on recall list. Can you tell me why this is ok to eat when it comes from same machines as recalled cereal? We're they both made in same or different plants. Email answer to connieprius@gmail.com. Thank you

Thank you for posting this information, which matches exactly what the Kellogg's 800 number tells you. Unfortunately, when you hit 2 to talk to a representative, that goes nowhere. Probably overwhelmed. More concerning, we have a box that is on the list -- and we have already eaten 3/4 of it!! UGH!!
