Kellogg's Mini-Wheats Recall

Kellogg is releasing a product recall of their Mini-Wheats products due to a potential of some metal mesh flakes that could have found its way into the cereal.  The metal flakes would have come from a faulty manufacturing part.

They've had no reports of any injuries or issues, but they're playing it safe.

The recall is for specific Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal products.

"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."
