Kellogg’s Cereal Recall: Company Recalls Mini-Wheats Due To Possible Metal Fragments

Source: FDA

Kellogg’s is recalling nearly three million boxes of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal and its Unfrosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size cereal because of fears they may contain metal fragments.

On Wednesday the company announced there was an issue with a manufacturing part and it’s possible, but unlikely, that fragments of metal mesh may be inside the cereal.

“According to Dr. David Acheson, an internal medicine physician and former Chief Medical Officer at the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) with whom we consulted, the likelihood of these fragments making their way into the food is low,” Kellogg’s said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal. “Furthermore, the chances that any affected food will cause injury is low.”

Per the notice filed with the US Food and Drug Administration, the recall includes 282,000 cases. Boxes included in the recall have the letters “KB,” “AP” or “FK” before or after the “Best Before” date.

1. Anybody want to bet that China is involved somehow?

We don't hear much about where food originates anymore. The Chinese government got really angry about our reporters telling the American people the truth about where the poisons were coming from. I don't know where these miniwheats were actually cut and packaged, but the safety of our food continues to be in question.

2. This proves it. Wheat is bad for you.

Especially when Heavy Metal crudola is infesting your breakfast GMO food-like product.

13. Oh..

I didn't know you could do that. So, do I just take the boxes in or whatever? I mean, it's only 10 bucks altogether but hey, that's 10 bucks towards other cereals I guess.

18. Absolutely get a refund

Check with Kelloggs website to see what method they are using for a refund, but it's not yours to take the loss on this.

12. Once again the Simpsons are prophets

 

First they had Abe make the papers for yelling at a chair like Eastwood did.

Now the episode featuring Krusty's cereal with metal bits is another unanticipated prediction come true.

15. One of my former vices was an ocasional bowl of Froot Loops, since I was given it as a kid.

Last box had metal fragments mixed in with the ground meal, which I found by chewing on them and spitting them out. Haven't eaten a cereal product since. If I can't clearly see the grain (like oatmeal) I ain't buying it.

teeth repair just staring us in the face.

21. They should be recalled for containing wheat and sugar

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505269_162-57505149/modern-wheat-a-perfect-chronic-poison-doctor-says/

(CBS News) Modern wheat is a "perfect, chronic poison," according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist who has published a book all about the world's most popular grain.

Davis said that the wheat we eat these days isn't the wheat your grandma had: "It's an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the '60s and '70s," he said on "CBS This Morning." "This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there's a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It's not gluten. I'm not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I'm talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year."

Asked if the farming industry could change back to the grain it formerly produced, Davis said it could, but it would not be economically feasible because it yields less per acre. However, Davis said a movement has begun with people turning away from wheat - and dropping substantial weight.

24. Why would they consult a physician about the possibility of the fragments

getting into the food? Wouldn't an engineer, or industrial designer, or someone familiar with the machine that malfunctioned make more sense?
