LANSING (WWJ) - It’s time to check the pantry.

Kellogg’s is recalling several different boxes of Frosted Mini-Wheats because the breakfast cereal may contain fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part.

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.

Products impacted are:

Kellogg’s said the likelihood of these metal fragments making their way into the food is low and the chances that any affected food will cause injury is low, but the recall was issued voluntarily as a precaution.

A Kellogg’s representative said they have not yet received any reports of any illness.

Consumers with affected product can call 800-962-1413 to arrange replacement of your purchase.
