Recall of Kellogg's Frosted and Unfrosted Mini-Wheats

Posted October 11, 2012

Kellogg's has recalled certain Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size cereals. I am sure that many of us have Kellogg's Mini-Wheats in our homes since there are often BOGO sales and coupons for these.

According to the Kellogg's website, the cereals have been recalled because of "possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part."

Here are the specific cereals that have been recalled:

    This is the email I received back from Kelloggs - interesting that I told them I had 1 full and 1/2 box and am only getting a replacement coupon for one box:

    Wow, Nancy I would be on the phone in a hot minute with the company that makes the sausage. That is just unacceptable.

    On another note, how is your DH doing? Hope he's feeling well and his recovery in progressing nicely. :)

    I have 1 unopened box and one opened box in my house. I've emailed Kelloggs on Wednesday and am waiting on a return reply to find out what I am suppose to do.

    Oh, that's not good news about the frosted mini wheats. I bought two boxes and only one is unopened - my hubby already ate the other box - uh-oh! Guess he had no ill effects, but sure will not eat the other one!

    Ewww.... don't like random bones in sausage...ewww...

    I also only have the fruit filled raspberry because of the recent .70/1 printable that had been available (which is of course why you have them as well!). :-)

  • Nancy Oct 11, 2012

    Wow! Well at least they got the word out. We have only the fruit filled ones, checked the numbers, we're clear.

    On the other hand, I bought a package of the Alfresco chicken sausage, and my daughters girlfriend bit into a piece of bone! I emailed the company three days ago, no response. I am NOT pleased.
