Kellogg's Cereal Recalled

Cereals involved in recall include Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and Honey Smacks sold in the U.S. cereal in Canada has not been affected. WebMD reports the spokeswoman for Kellogg's J. Adaire Putnam stated "We have identified a substance in the package liners that can produce an uncharacteristic waxy-like off taste and smell, Consumers report a variety of tastes and smells, including those that are stale, metal, and soap-like." Kellogg's website also stated that "while the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive" to the odd odors and "should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea." The company says only products with the letters "KN" following the words "better if used before date" are included in the recall. It says consumers who have questions or want a replacement for any cereal bought can call Kellogg at 888-801-4163. Calling the number will give you a list of cereals in the recall and WebMD also has a list available on their website here.
