28 Million Boxes of Kelloggs Breakfast Cereal RECALLED

Working in consultation with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kellogg Company is implementing a voluntary recall of certain breakfast cereals (Apple Jacks, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops & Honey Smacks) due to an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package.

Only products with the letters “KN” following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall. Products with a “KM” designation are NOT included in the recall. In addition, no products in Canada are affected.

While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

No other Kellogg’s products are part of this recall. The recalled products were distributed nationwide.

“We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace,” said David Mackay, president and chief executive officer, Kellogg Company.

Those with questions or who would like a replacement may contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time.
