Kellogg recalls lots of certain breakfast cereals

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. Kellogg has implemented a voluntary recall of certain breakfast cereals 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 CEO at Kellogg.
