Kellogg’s Mini-Wheats Recalled for Metal Fragments—Crunch!

Joanie.Demer

The FDA has issued a voluntary recall on Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size due to the possible presence of metal fragments from a piece of equipment.

To determine whether you have purchased any of the recalled Mini-Wheets, look for these letters before or after the “Best If Used Before” date: KB, AP or FK.

Be aware, this recall is for Mini-Wheats only. Other Kellogg’s cereals with one of the three letter combinations are not part of the recall.

Below is a complete list of the recalled cereal:
