Metal fragments prompt recall of 2.8 million boxes of Mini-Wheats10/11/2012
Time to put a hold on those jokes about not having enough iron in your diet. Kellogg's is recalling 2.8 million boxes of its popular Mini-Wheats, both frosted and unfrosted, after a snafu left fragments of metal mesh in some packages. The recall involves boxes of all sizes with a use-by date between April 1 and Sept. 21 of 2013. No injuries or illnesses have been reported yet due to contaminated cereal, but the company is likely to take a $30 million hit, on top of $100 million it's already spent this year to fix supply chain issues. Good thing we can still count on bacon for breakfast. [Source]
