Some packages of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size, Original Mini-Wheat and Kellogg’s Cereal Assortment Jumbo Pack (30 count) have been recalled per an announcement made by the Kellogg Company on Wednesday.

The voluntary recall was issued following the company’s belief that some of the packages may contain metal mesh fragments. Apparently a machine part on the production line was found faulty and the wear from the part suggested that some metal may have worn off and contaminated the cereals.

The only two stores affected by the recall are Walmart and Sam’s Club. The recall includes the cereals mentioned above and bought at Walmart or Sam’s Club with “best by” or “better if used before” dates between April 1, 2013 and September 21, 2013.

Customers with boxes of these cereals in their possession are being asked to call Kelloggs at 800-962-1413.

A Kellogg’s representative further clarified specific recall items by stating, “Only packages of Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size with the letters “KB”, “AP” or “FK” before or after the Best If Used Before date are included in the recall.”
